John Knox joined the team in 2018 as the Assistant Manager. His conservation background includes growing native grasses and forbs, monitoring vegetation in the sagesteppe, instructing veterans in organic agriculture, and serving in AmeriCorps positions with the US Fish & Wildlife service and Student Conservation Association. He is a Marine Corps veteran, and he graduated from University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. Outside of the PMC, he owns and operates Holy Basil Farm.

John is currently piloting a project with the Plant Materials Center involving a technique called the Missouri Gravel Bed (MGB). This has been found to extend the bare root plant planting season and would allow the Plant Materials Center to provide customers with plants year-round. More information can be found in our Publications page.
