About the instructors:
Sarah Canterberry learned about gardening, gleaning, and preserving food from her mom and grandmothers. As the garden educator at Vernon Elementary since 2007, she has been able to incorporate teaching children about year-round gardening and overseeing students harvesting for their cafeteria. She loves the hard work, health, deliciousness, and joy she gets from sharing and growing food.

Rachel Freifelder grew up with her father's organic garden, holds a degree in ecology from Stanford University, and studied herbs at the Pacific School of Botanical Medicine. She has worked on several farms, has taught gardening to kids and adults since 1996, and offers garden services as Handmade Gardens Edible and Native Organic Land Care. She believes that careful planning and nerdy record-keeping have contributed to her garden's continued bounty.
