Steve List

First and foremost Steve List is a teacher.  He is also, a landscaper and president of the San Fernando Valley chapter of the California Association of Nurseries and Garden Centers

Steve has been cultivating high school horticulturists at Sylmar High School in Sylmar, CA, for the past 7 years.    Since taking over the school’s neglected 2 acre Regional Occupational Program parcel, he and hundreds of students have launched a green revolution of flowers, fruits and vegetables across the northeast San Fernando Valley.  At the same time he has taught his students urban agriculture, nutrition, edible landscaping — and values.”

His students have designed, built and given away 200 four-foot raised-bed gardens for families without fresh fruits and veggies.  To date, List and his Sylmar High horticulturists have found homes for an estimated 100,000 trees, plants and seedlings and ensured that lots of Angelenos benefit from freshly picked produce.

Steve freely proclaims, “This is my dream, my calling”.  And we all benefit from his dedication.
