18 Years of Commitment

Two weeks ago, a hundred people gathered underneath the tent on the Lincoln farm to say thank you and farewell to Greg Gale, who has spent the last 18 years of his life dedicated, committed, and invested in work of The Food Project.  Much of what The Food Project is today is due to the heart of Greg Gale.  The send-off for Greg was a testament to his time here.

To the tune of "Wonderwall" by Oasis

Today is gonna be the day that we have to say farewell to you.
Don't know how, but you'll have to allow that we're gonna miss you thru and thru.
I don't believe that anybody inspires TFP the way you do.

Mentor, guide, and coach you know you're all that,
And look just like the man in the yellow hat.
There are many things you do that make me stop and say right out loud.
Wow.

You're Greg G.
Architect of the SYP.
Not to mention the AYP.
Champion of Diversity.
Building our capacity.

And after all...you're so very tall.

Today is gonna be the day that we have to say without a doubt,
So true, on land or in canoe, you remind us what we're all about.
I don't believe that anybody inspires TFP the way you do.

Leader, pusher, driver you are all that.
Again I'll say the thing about the yellow hat.
There are many things you do that make me stop and say right out loud.
Holy Cow!

You're Greg G.
Architect of the SYP.
Not to mention the AYP.
Champion of Diversity.
Building our capacity.
So we're know nationally.
Lover of the tamale.

And after all...you're so very tall.

And last, but certainly not least, the guest of honor himself:


Greg, your contributions to this organization and all of the people involved are innumerable and so very valuable to the core of what we do. Thanks for 18 years of commitment, inspiration, fun, wisdom, and guidance.
