Joe and Nadyne Greschner are farmers from Goodsoil, Saskatchewan.

They recently discovered a few major differences between farming in the Imperial County and farming in Canada after taking part in the Farm Smart 2015 Winter Visitor Tours at the University of California Desert Research and Extension Center on Thursday.

As the County beat reporter, I cover the Board of Supervisors and the city councils for El Centro and Imperial, as well as health issues and community events. I received a Master's degree in Specialized Journalism from USC Annenberg in 2013.
