Regional and Community Food Systems
— Testimonials, April 2019 — Green Mountain College

“This class has been wonderful, and I've learned an incredible amount in 6 weeks. I am grateful for your kind and helpful feedback on posts and papers throughout the course! I get a bit of anxiety about my writing and your feedback meant a lot to me. The discussions in this class were lively and interesting, and you were an active participant in every conversation, which led to fascinating tangents and insights. Your valuable comments and consistent involvement in the discussion posts were something I really appreciated — not all of the professors have been so active in the conversations. It's been both constructive and enjoyable, and I came away with a deeper understanding and a much greater appreciation of the systems involved in every meal I eat! I also finished the course with a new interest in pursuing work in the field of sustainable food systems, an avenue that I hadn’t previously considered. . .”

“It was truly a pleasure wading through the sometimes poignant, sometimes inspiring content with such an engaging professor and group of classmates. Your critiques of my writing structure did not go unnoticed and were well-received. An engineer’s writing abilities are not particularly lauded, and I must admit. . . I will be able to draw upon your insights to communicate complex concepts in a way that more effectively garners support and promotes civic action.”
