“I clearly remember how I came away at the end of each session – valuing what skills I had, thinking about what I didn’t know and what I now wanted to know. Feeling positive and renewed to challenge myself and investigate more, I realised I was more than ‘I’m just’ and that what I did really counted. Coming away motivated to use what I had learnt to add value.” – UYFB graduate and #criticalfarmingpartner Rachel McKelvie.
