Dear Cambridge Community,

Although we are all still reeling from the past week, it is time to return to school. There is so much to say about everything. Paradoxically, that may be the reason I want to limit my comments here to our Cambridge school community.

I want to thank everyone for coming out tonight to support City Sprouts. I know that your time and resources are precious with many worthy competing claims laid on both. I also want to congratulate Jane Hirshi and her team for having the dedication and commitment to ensure that for the last 12 years children throughout Cambridge have had the experience of literally touching the earth, nurturing food from seed to table, and learning firsthand about the source of the food they consume.
