“Leadership in Edible Education has given me the language, the context, and most importantly the community to begin to understand how I am a leader in this newly emerging field. Through thoughtfully chosen experiences situated within the Seattle and Kitsap area, stimulating dialogues, and powerful resources I have honed my knowledge, strength and vision.
