Overall, this year’s program was a great success! In short, we had:

  • Four flash seminars (man, this was a long time ago)
  • Three classes: Farmer’s Markets, Food Politics and Research Methods; Agro-Ecology; and Sustainability and Human Needs
  • 40 students (15 in Block A, 25 in Block B)
  • Three times the amount of scholarship funds (Yay, local sponsors!!)
  • Three scholarship winners
  • Two photo contests with over 60 entries!
  • One feature by a local news station, NBC29
  • Two cooking demonstrations
  • Two mindfulness sessions
  • Two Fed Up Screenings
  • Too much rain and hot weather
  • Lots of reading, learning, exploring, eating and fun

We look forward to another great program next year. Until then…
