Teaching Kids how to garden and respect the foods found in Nature - Brian Wheat at Richfield Alternative School

I met Brian Wheat at Dist 287 schools through my friend Blaine MacCutchen about 5 years ago.
In the Spring of several years, ? 2012 or 13, he is a friend of Brian's on the left, and Brian who has been passionate about teaching about sustainable gardening and supporting schools that have the vision to support it.  I hope another steps up to continue the teaching here in Richfield
