About the Speaker: Dave Johnston - Founder & Lead Designer - BioEve

The workshop is taught by BioEve, founder and lead designer, Dave Johnston. Since moving to Southern California in 2011, Dave found his passion in gardening and landscaping. BioEve provides organic resource design for clients throughout San Diego County.
