Young growers at International Fruit Tree Association tour - Noel Kline, Celebrate Gettysburg

A group of young growers first visited the remote mountain village of Talolinga, Nicaragua in 2010. Struck by the many challenges the farmers there face, they decided to partner with Project Gettysburg-León (PGL) to initiate an Agricultural Extension Project.

Young growers are encouraged to look beyond their farm boundaries and participate in an exchange program.

Past tours that YGA members have taken - local, national and international.

There are many opportunities for young growers to get leaderships skills as well as other professional development opportunities.
