David Tingley Bio:
After graduating from Purdue University in 1977 with a BS in Agriculture I began a career in the landscape industry. I later moved back to the farm and raised hogs, corn, soybeans and operated a small nursery. It was during this time that I first dreamed of agriculture mission work.
I later returned to the landscape industry where I spent most of the next thirty years. During this time I participated on mission trips to Ukraine, Grand Turk Island, Haiti and Ethiopia as well as working for the Bermuda Government Department of Parks.
After a 2012 mission trip to Haiti the dream became focused on Haiti and developed into a vision. This vision became a reality in 2017 when I began full time mission work in Haiti.
OUR VISION color
USAID FARMER TO FARMER PROGRAM
In 2016 I had the opportunity to participate in the USAID Farmer to Farmer program through Catholic Relief Services. For three weeks I taught classes in Horticulture Crops Production to instructors and students at Alage ATVET College in Ethiopia. The classed covered tomato and onion production, Integrated Pest Management, and grafting of mangoes.
