Last week, a group of federal government employees had the opportunity to visit California and tour agricultural operations throughout Ventura, Riverside, San Bernardino, Imperial and San Diego counties.

This tour, known as the Washington, D.C., Educational Fellowship Program (also known as D.C. Exchange), is organized and hosted by the California Ag Leadership Alumni Council. It brings together government representatives — from various federal agencies — for an in-depth and significant learning opportunity.
