Ontario Agriculture

The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

After 7 flights, 2 countries, 5 hotels, 4 different buses and a dozen or more farm visits, we are home again! What an adventure we all shared over the last 12 days. We experienced so much as a class, whether it was learning new leadership skills, to eating crickets, to meeting with fellow Canadians working in Vietnam. We also have a new appreciation for how certain foods are grown – like bananas, coffee, tea, coconuts, rice and pepper (to name a few); foods that many of us enjoy everyday!

We are all so grateful for this amazing experience and look forward to sharing our learnings and stories with our friends and family in each of our respective communities. Thank you for reading our blog. We hope you enjoyed following along!
