As a member of the advisory board of The Cuba Consortium, Winrock President and CEO Rodney Ferguson is one of a group of experts tracking and fostering the normalization of relations between the United States and Cuba. Winrock staff and volunteers also traveled to Cuba to meet with farmers and explore possible future visits by U.S.-based agricultural experts; thousands of Winrock volunteers have traveled the world over the past quarter century to share knowledge about effective ways to improve farming practices and open up new markets.
