Sonia Schloemann and Ken Nicewicz with Congressman Joe Kennedy III.CAFE goes to Washington 

Late each winter, volunteer representatives of the Land Grant universities converge on Capitol Hill for what are known as "CARET" meetings. CARET is the Council on Agricultural Research Extension and Teaching, a council of the Association of Public and Land Grant Universities (APLU). CAFE’s volunteer champion Ken Nicewicz, along with Extension Educator Sonia Schloemann, met with the Massachusetts legislative delegation in March to discuss the work of the UMass Extension and the Mass. Agricultural Experiment Station.
