Student Stories

“The nutrition education we are receiving will help people to understand the meaning of greens and healthy food, and why it’s better. If we eat healthier and stop eating all this junk food, we will live a longer life, and I’m sure that everyone in this world would like a longer life.”

“I like learning to teach other students how to be healthy and how you can have a farm without soil. It’s crazy how nature can combine with technology.”

“[My daughter] used to only like corn, it was just corn corn corn. But since starting this program, she’s started to eat a lot more vegetables.”
