Our 1st Inbound VTT (Vocational Training Team) to visit District 7090 will be from Australia’s District 9790 and will focus on Fruit Farming aspects.  See attached Bio’s.  They will experience many aspects of production, pest control, water management, geography, as well as explore labor methods, government influences, and marketing avenues.
They will tour the US from May 23rd arriving in Buffalo and then touring our upper regions of the District where there are multiple Fruit Farming venues.  They will be staying with Rotarian Host Families in Lockport, Medina, Holley, Clarence, and Westfield. 
Starting June 4th, they will tour the CA side of our District with its plentiful Fruit Farming venues. The Hosts will be in Vineland, Beamsville, Brantford and Simcoe.  They will depart on June 16th from Toronto.
For the detailed schedule and bios of the team, click here or go to the District website -, in the header menu click on Our Rotary Work, The Rotary Foundation, then Vocational Training Teams.  The schedule and the bios will be in the left-hand menu on the VTT page.
