Senegal Africa, Keur Ali Gueye

KFU President Donn Teske will be visiting with the group about his experience working with a village in Senegal Africa on their farming. He often states that he learned more from them than they learned from him, especially in regards to community. The photos and the dynamics of their lives really are intriguing and humbling.

PRESENTER
: Donn Teske

Donn Teske was first elected president of Kansas Farmers Union in 2001 and served as National Farmers Union Vice President from 2014 to 2018. He owns and operates a farm near Wheaton in Pottawatomie County as a 5th generation farmer. Teske’s farm is approximately 2/3 grass and 1/3 crops. Prior to his time at KFU, Donn worked for the Kansas Rural Center and for Kansas State University Agricultural Economics Department as a farm financial analyst. In 2010 he worked with the village of Keur Ali Gueye in Senegal Africa on their millet production; it was a life-changing experience for him. He serves on the board of some dozen state, regional, and national boards concerning agriculture and the environment.

Please join in! You don’t have to leave home and the chores, the price is right, and it will be really good to network with each other.
