Meet John Wood

John Wood, a recent graduate of Warren Wilson College is in town for the month to "learn how to grow food."  He's volunteering his time and effort in exchange for a place to stay and the chance to put seeds in the ground.  He has questions about soil, business, and rooting oneself in the broader community. 

John's real job is working with North Carolina Outward Bound as an Instructor with groups of teenagers.  He recently completed an assignment in the Everglades where he lived with eight thirteen-year-olds on a 12x12ft platform atop five canoes.  At the beginning of April, he reports to the Rio Grande in south Texas for his next expedition.
