He was born in Wichita and raised in a rural area south of Newton, Wesley attended Berean Academy and graduated from Kansas State University with a Master’s in Landscape Architecture. Wesley has a background in gardening, youth development, design, and art. Wesley sees outdoor, interactive learning as a key part of education and sees gardening, design, and art as great tools to create exciting and effective outdoor learning environments. It’s a joy to provide space for children to explore and discover things like earthworms, butterflies, various plants, and tasty vegetables. Wesley believes spending time in a garden helps form a foundation of healthy eating and enjoyment of the outdoors for any kid and is happy to be involved in increasing kids’ opportunities to be in a garden.
