It is with heavy hearts that Yolo Farm to Fork announces the passing of Dorothy Peterson a founding member of the Davis Farm to School program, as well as Yolo Farm to Fork. She was a champion of garden-based learning for every child. A public school teacher for 37 years, Dorothy was a shining light for our community and knew how to get things done. Her energy and spirit were contagious. She will be missed.
