Ludmila and Anatolik plant pumpkin seeds on land they rent every year in Radyanska Sloboda in central Ukraine. In addition to farming, both work at the local school, one as a cook and the other a carpenter. Their combined monthly income of about $300 is not enough to support both them and their two kids who are now in their mid twenties. Working the land supplies their family with food and feed for the animals that they raise.
