Jennifer Webb

"All children deserve excellence in eduction and a diversity in the ways in which lessons are presented to them. Hands-on learning like that promoted by Temple Terrace Farm2School (TTF2S) helps teachers bring students out of the classroom and into the garden. As someone who specializes in high-impact learning practices, looks for community led initiatives, and believes i the importance of connecting kids to nature, I was honored to join TTF2S's founding board. I stay an active supporter of the groups mission and vision because I see the way this sustainable and scaleable school-based solution makes a real difference in the lives of school children."
