John started Clean Bread and Cheese Creek in 2009 with a small group of friends looking to clean up the neighborhood creek that backs up to his and many other residents’ homes. Though his group started out with only a handful of people, his ambitious efforts soon caught the attention of residents, businesses and other environmental groups who wanted to partner up and participate in his cause.
