Jackie has worked with Sr. Helen Vinton at SMHA for many years on sustainable agriculture (especially difficult in sugar cane).
He hosted a tour showing equipment and had discussions with farm workers and the sugar industry.
Gloria met with Jackie and his family, who carry on the business.
She was very excited to sit atop the harvester and take it for a ride to get hands on experience!
