At PCC he studied plant identification, soil types, permaculture and landscape design, plant establishment and maintenance, and construction for decks, water gardens, irrigation, and much more. Through the Master Gardener program, he learned integrated pest management and pesticide safety, soils, fertilizers, and composting, vegetable and container gardening, and sustainable landscaping.

Like many American Veterans, John spent years living homeless in the City of Portland. He was one of the first residents of Dignity Village, and is happy to say that he has successfully left homelessness behind, started Yardmaster NW, and contributes to the community through volunteer work helping the rehabilitation of other homeless men.
