I am so grateful to be the new recipient of this special coin as a gift from Dave Evans. I believe there are no coincidences in life, and the chance that our paths should have crossed was rare. I've taught a course on "Saving the Monarchy" at Red Butte Gardens for about six years now, with hundreds of people taking the course. Had Dave not followed up with an email, which led to a phone conversation - this endearing friendship would never have happened. I will cherish it until I know the right person to gift it to next.
I received this coin from Brad Grimm. Brad is an amazing man with the passion for milkweed and monarch butterflies. I have acquired about 18 acres of marshy natural springs. I am blessed to on the land of two of these springs. And have great relationships with others that also own a few of the springs. Brad and Rachel Taylor put together a group of volunteers. And we planted about 1500 milkweed. I have decided who to pass the coin along to. But I will post later once I have passed the coin along to her. Thank you again Brad.
