St. Louis Volunteers Get a Visit from Top Officials
Agriculture volunteers in St. Louis are doing great work building partners’ capacity and improving the nutritional status of community members. Urban Agriculture Volunteer Timothy and his counterpart Babacar Gaye showed off their garden to U.S. Ambassador James P. Zumwalt and Peace Corps Senegal Country Director Cheryl Gregory Faye during a recent visit. The visitors planted two trees and promised to return to see the fruits of Tim and Babacar’s labors next year. In a nearby village, Sustainable Agriculture volunteer Emilie and Master Farmer Batch Gueye showed Director Faye their preparations for the upcoming open field day when Batch’s enhanced techniques will be showcased to local farmers for inspiration.
