Richard is an amazing resource for anyone interested in food forestry or medicinal herbs. He opens his life and experience up for the class to pursue and shares information freely. If anyone could have the opportunity to spend some time with him, it would be certainly valuable information to take and use for your entire life. He is also a regular person who has worked hard at what he has accomplished and made me feel that anybody can do what he has done if their heart, mind and spirit are on the same path. Thanks Richard.
