    Temra Costa is an amazing woman!

    I had the privilege of meeting and speaking with this fabulous and highly intelligent lady. I can't wait to buy the book. I'm planning on attending her book release party soon.

    I encourage everyone to read this book including school officials, city officials, and other non-profits interested in food sustainability. Temra has a vast knowledge in the area she so wholeheartdly supports and promotes. I was very impressed with her persona and felt her energy and motivation. Her energy is so strong that it's impossible to resist and not be motivated after speaking to her.

    Congratulations Temra!
