As you probably know, Tim's wife Kat is learning clinical skills with me at KKV. I would love to learn more about Tim's work. We were very impressed with the tour of their new buildings at Ma'o using his sustainable building practices. Maybe we could all go out to lunch together sometime (schedules permitting). Perhaps at the Kahumanu Farms cafe.
