Temple Terrace Farm2School is pleased to welcome our first Program Manager for the 2017/18 school year. Thanks to the generosity of sponsors Beth & Gerry Curts and Ken Ward, we are able to offer a stipend to Patel College of Sustainability student, Adrian Gonzalez. Adrian's work with TT Farm2School will be his Capstone Project to fulfill requirements for his Master's in Food Sustainability.

Adrian grew up helping his father operate a blackberry farm in Mexico that exports blackberries worldwide. He is completing his masters degree at the Patel College of Global Sustainability with a food systems concentration. Adrian has been able to apply his research about how to to increase crop productivity in a sustainable way to bring improvements to his family's blackberry farm. He says of his work at Greco during the 2017/18 school year: "I'm looking forward to working with Greco's agriculture teacher, Ms Ladd, to help students understand the interconnection between food, health and the environment."
