International Scientists Visit Farm

Thank you shareholder Ali Lacombe for suggesting Henry Got Crops as a field trip for the USDA! Ali knew what farm to recommend when her coworker mentioned he wanted to organize a fieldtrip for a team of visiting international scientists. He was showcasing Philadelphia agriculture to a team of agronomy specialists who focus on the study of sorghum grasses. The group was meeting at the Wyndmoor USDA office to exchange ideas from their various research projects in countries as diverse as Mexico and China. They were particularly impressed by the number of people that we feed off this farm (over 100 families), and the diversity of vegetables we grow.
