    Mar 29, 2018

During this unique opportunity, students not only learned about agriculture in a foreign country, but also actively experienced a culture unlike their own. Before the trip, however, there was a cloud of doubt and uncertainty surrounding everyone, but after just a couple days, those emotions were replaced by excitement and relaxation.
