In 1982 he moved up to Santa Barbara and graduated from Santa Barbara City College with his A.S. in Environmental Horticulture.

He made his career choice early at 27 and for 26 years has perfected his approach to environmental gardening. Corey has given regular training seminars on sustainable landscaping in the Southern California area.
