In August of 2018 Lacey participated in the exchange program and with MSU staff and others programs participated traveled to Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania. During this exchange trip, Lacey and others visited women/communal owned and operated farms, engaged in cultural exchanges and learned of the innovated and abundant products that farmers, in Eastern Africa, are creating.
