    I am an undergraduate at UNC studying Nutrition the Gillings School of Public Health. Personally I am very interested in the edible campus project and would like to get more involved in it.
    Also, as part of the Nutrition Coalition, a student group on campus, I am tasked with a organizing a Spring Service Project. I believe that we can work together to make the ideas that you all have come to light.
    Please do let me know how I can help out with this extraordinary movement.
    Thank you,
