I love working with farmers to solve problems. I also love that [this work] gives you opportunities to see places, interact with locals, and understand the country in a way that you never could if you were just traveling.
Anna Snider BS'98
Anna Snider’s love of horticulture and farming started during her childhood in Wisconsin as she spent time in the garden or at her uncle’s and grandparents’ farms. While at UW–Madison, she immersed herself in her horticulture major becoming president of the Horticulture Society and organizing its first tour of Costa Rica with faculty mentor Jim Nienhuis. She now volunteers with the USAID-funded Winrock International Farmer-to-Farmer program and travels to developing countries to provide technical assistance for farmers, farmers’ organizations, and agribusinesses. So far, her projects have brought her to Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Bangladesh, Nigeria and Senegal. https://go.wisc.edu/28p88j
