On the Farm to School Institute:
The coaches help follow up on projects, ideas, and planning, and they've been invaluable in that process. It gives us a chance to sustain our efforts. Farm to school is really hard work - hard in a world of competing priorities in public school, and it takes a lot of commitment and organization. The design of this program has been the best that I've experienced in a long career of quality professional development.
- Bruce Williams, Superintendent of School, Two Rivers Supervisory Union
"It has all been very educational and insightful. It's nice knowing we are not alone in our obstacles but are inspired from others' success stories. Connecting with other schools has been helpful. Loved all the speakers. Workshops were great."
-Kerrie Mathes, Champlain Elementary
