Teacher Steve List of Sylmar High and CANGC SFV

I nominate Horticulture Teacher Steve List of Sylmar High in the way North of LA's San Fernando Valley. Steve and I have worked together for years sharing grower donors and he's learned that the more you give the more you get. 'So much so, that now any school or community garden that wants organic vegetable or flower plants can show up at Sylmar's Ag program and fill their Prius, hoop'tee or even, their whole truck for free. You know who you are -- from Pedro to Boyle Hts. and back to Venice. Unlike myself, Steve, the self-proclaimed "Green Republican," can keep his mouth shut and as such has kept his job at LAUSD. Jamie Oliver, who? Additionally, Steve has learned how to navigate the school board, city hall and nonprofit world and has as many as 20 kids working year round (many in their first paid gigs) in the nursery to enable all the other kids in LA the opportunity to learn where their food comes from. Think plugmobs with a month or two of growth on 'em. It works. Steve works. So if you have gotten a flat of peppers or eaten some of those peppers grown in a Highland Park garden from Steve and I, give him a nod. - Mud
