Lowell and Christie Young

Lowell Young and his wife, Christie, have lived in California’s Napa Valley for over 40 years.  Mr. Young taught high school biology for nearly 38 years before he retired.  He holds a Masters’ Degree in the art of teaching biology.

The class that evolved into Biodesign was a collaborative, creative project where the roles of teacher and student were often reversed.  It was well known by the students that although Mr. Young represented the physical nature of the class, Christie’s silent spiritual guidance was often felt in their classroom circles as well as along the many miles of trails they walked.  The Biodesign class may be the only one of its kind taught in a public high school in the country.
