As I am finishing packing for the Netherlands, I feel very excited to have this opportunity! I am leaving on May 18th for a week in the Netherlands as the culmination of the ‘Practical Applications of Leadership in Agriculture’ class offered at SEBS. Agriculture is my passion and I am eager to witness the agricultural industry of another country.
One of the things I am looking forward to the most is visiting Aalsmeer, a huge horticultural auction. The building spans over 100 acres across the land.
Although this trip is focusing on agriculture, we will also have the chance to visit Amsterdam and Rotterdam.
I am looking forward to hearing about the complex relationship the Netherlands has with the ocean and how the Netherlands combats the impending waters with dikes.
I can’t wait to experience the Netherlands and learn more! As the Dutch say, ‘until next time’: tot de volgende keer!
