I congratulate Wendy Sommer on her success and impactful career with As a science teacher and school garden coordinator at Pleasanton Middle School, I was thrilled to host visits and support provided by StopWaste educators. They have developed really effective and engaging programs for youth, families, and the larger community. I refer to their website frequently to check resources for food waste reduction and other ways to help youth become climate activists through their own actions, and learn to organize at a school and district level. I am excited to meet Timothy Burroughs and to learn what he will bring to the table. Everyone should check their website before you throw anything questionable in the trash (landfill). Cheers!
