SDARL South Dakota Leadership Class XI in

Gouda, The Netherlands


Day 3 – Today was our first full day on our international journey.  We spent the night in Ultrecht Netherlands.  We boarded a bus and began our day with a tour of Wageningen University, a local agricultural research college.  We walked thru Unifarm and NPEC greenhouse and research center where they focus on plant research on the molecular level.  They heavily study all kinds of different environments that can change the makeup of plants.  The group enjoyed a meal at the university union center surrounded by local students.  We re-boarded the bus and traveled to Gouda Netherlands where we took a walking tour of the town and enjoyed the local culture and people, while learning about one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands.  After a few hours of free time to explore and adventure on our own we reconvened on the bus and made the trip back to our hotel ending our 3rd day.
