What is it about?

People living in remote, rural areas have limited access to the labor market. However, they are surrounded with an abundant, renewable resource, highly prized on the market: pristine clean, wild-grown herbs. The Green Gold project seeks to train people living in rural areas as wild-grown herb harvesters, and connect them to the market for the herbs and herb-based products.
