I just wanted to update you with what is happening with our plant tours. We have postponed all tours originally planned for 2020: Baja (April), Namibia (May), Ecuador (June), South Africa (September), and Madagascar (October). In addition, we are also organizing a extra tour in November 202: Chile-Argentina 

We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. When the world opens up again, and it will, we will be ready to safely travel abroad.
