My name is Theri Wasniewski, I am one of the horticulture instructors. My favorite classes to teach are about woody plants and insects. We plant, prune, check for diseases and learn to make our communities better by having the right plants in the right places. The Brainerd Lakes area is a great place to live and go to school. There is more to do and explore in the area than there are days in a week. I like to hike, camp, cross country ski, garden and check out the native plant communities in our area. It would be great if every property (home and work) had a few apple trees and some herbs or vegetables; sustainable by design!
