Greg Gale is a founding staff member of The Food Project who helped build and develop the organization over an 18 year period. He was involved in all aspects of the enterprise from fundraising and management to farming and youth development. As The Food Project grew, Greg transitioned from Co-Director to Program Director where he created, implemented and managed programs. He wrote 'Growing Together: A guide to building inspired, diverse and productive youth communities' and helped to author numerous Food Project manuals. In addition, Greg had a passion for training and developed the Institutes and other training modules for The Food Project.

Greg left The Food Project in 2009 to join VISIONS, Inc. - a diversity and anti-racism training organization. His ongoing passion for youth development and youth in sustainable food systems lead him to craft a partnership with The Food Project. Greg now works as a trainer on behalf of The Food Project, convenes and runs TFP's Institutes, and consults with people wanting to draw from The Food Project model. Greg wants to help others build strong organizations that tap into the potential of young people to create change.
