I want to express my gratitude to Rachel Lubitz, the dedicated and inspired garden coordinator at Jasper’s school, Hall Fletcher Elementary, for 4 years. Rachel, I’m grateful for the work you have done to introduce children to the magic of growing food, and I want to thank you for being my friend. Best of luck in graduate school and beyond! Your Hall Fletcher family will always be here for you.
