"I’ve had many opportunities over the past four years to attend professional development days facilitated by Robyn through the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation. I love the hands-on activities which helped me to plan classes and develop micro-business ideas to make our kitchen garden financially sustainable. Robyn was always thinking of the children and how to make it work in a real school setting."
