From An Educator
Dear Mr. Campbell,
This letter is about your product from Perpetual Food grow beds, liners, stainless steel clips and seed pods. If not for your products, sir, I would not be in the position I hold today. As the Agriculture Instructor at McArthur High School in Hollywood, Florida I was awarded the National Science Teacher Association (NSTA) Pioneer DuPont Agriculture Educator for 2017, I was also chosen by the National Association of Agriculture Educators (NAAE) as one of their 2017 Ambassadors in the nation. Also, Broward County, Florida’s Environmental Services Department has also awarded me the Preserving the Planet for Posterity.
I must say unequivocally that if not for the materials supplied by Perpetual Food through Randy Campbell, I would not have received the awards. My current objective is to double my output and production with more of Mr. Campbells materials. The products are easy to assemble as well as easy to maintain. We elevated our system to make it easier for elementary school children as well as senior citizens and wheel-chair bound persons to plant and harvest. Our students enhanced his system.
Mr. Campbell has not paid me for this endorsement, and I provide this willingly because it needs to be recognized and I would be happy to assist other teachers with the ease of use of these materials. As an instructor in a public school setting you need to keep it simple and Mr. Campbell does that naturally. His customer service skills are heartwarming and professional. May the reader of this testimonial not hesitate to contact me for further information.
