  1. If you missed the #AskAg chat, it is still possible to look through all the tweets from the chat by searching for #AskAg. If you are interested in knowing more about the topic - volunteering in international agriculture development - I encourage you to look through the chat and identify key organizations and individuals. Look up the websites of the organizations, and feel free to contact key individuals with your follow-up questions.

    Also, your classmates Akeem, Laura and Saundra participated in the chat and might be able to give you some insight.
