1,300 students from Central Oregon schools receive S2T farm education each year, totaling 10,000+ hours of student involvement on the farm.
400 hours of adult participation in S2T community presentations.
12,500 pounds of nutritious, locally grown and processed foods have gone to the Sisters schools, brought in by S2T from Oregon farmers and distributors.
