"The Greater Cincinnati Regional Food Policy is an ongoing partner and stakeholder in my work. The expertise provided by the council and Green Umbrella has informed the development of countless programs and initiatives that positively impact our communities. The regional approach has kept me in touch with colleagues throughout Greater Cincinnati which has increased cooperation as we work together to develop an ecosystem for regional success."
Tony Staubach, Hamilton County ReSource
"Embracing the boundless world beyond the classroom walls, students at Rees E. Price Academy discover not only knowledge but also the priceless lessons of nature, empowering them to grow, thrive, and make their mark on their community by planting a tree that they will be able to bring their children back to see. Green Umbrella and the Green Schoolyards Action Network have supported our staff and students by providing the essential resources to realize our vision in connecting children to nature."
Tiffani Maher, Rees E Price Elementary
