On this leg of his trip through South America, Steve explores Paraguay and opportunities for building a microcredit program in the country where Whole Foods Market sources its organic sugar cane.  Steve experiences the hospitality of folks who remember Phillip Sansone, Executive Director of the Whole Planet Foundation, from his days as a Peace Corps volunteer in Paraguay over 30 years ago.

I am searching for a place to buy sugar cane. I used to buy it back in Iowa at a super market in Mason City. it was a great sweet treat, but since moving to Nv, I havent been able to find a place that sells it. It came in 6-12 inch lengths and was so good!! anyone know where I can get this even if I have to order online and wait for it to arrive?
