Tell us more about your agricultural experiences:
- Bryan currently teaches high school sustainable/ ecological agriculture in New Mexico, which he studied at college in Olympia, WA. He owned and operated an independent "green" landscaping business in Spokane, WA and has written several business plans, for grass-fed beef, diversified vegetables, and value-added fruit and vegetable enterprises, with assistance from the Small Business Development Centers and Northwest Ag Business Center. Our family has practiced small-scale permaculture design and implementation for several years. We are currently most passionate about "restoration agriculture", more specifically medicinal herbs, livestock, and youth education. We envision ourselves in an active role in a small agricultural community, aiding food sovereignty and community sufficiency.
