Fred-Curtis and Mike LewisAfter his military service, Fred-Curtis majored in Agriculture with an emphasis in Livestock Production at Eastern Kentucky University. During his introduction to farming, through classes at EKU and his experiences on his brothers farm, Fred-Curtis felt something he had been looking for since he was discharged: purpose.

Fred-Curtis is currently a high school biology teacher, he also runs a CSA in North Carolina. He hopes to start a garden at the high school he works for, to provide students with education on the importance of local agriculture and organic practices.
