Sarah Bay traveled to Nicaragua Dec 9 - 16 as part of the Adams County’s Young Growers Alliance/Project Gettysburg-Leon’s Agriculture Delegation. Bay traveled with seven other delegates from south central Pennsylvania who are farmers or in agricultural-related fields. The group toured bio-intensive demonstration gardens, a community cooperative, a permaculture farm and met YGA/PGL sponsored sustainable agriculture students. There was also time to take in the sunny weather, visit natural sites like volcanos and canyons, and swim in a volcanic lake. In February Bay will do a presentation on her trip for the community.
