It has grown to include over a dozen retail clients located across the country, including several retail locations featuring DTB products in Tucson. The DTB web store was launched in 2010 and has steadily grown a small but committed following who depend upon the unique products (tinctures of Sonoran desert plants, in particular) created by John. DTB recently launched an Amazon store as well.

John recently retired from farmer's markets and took a year's sabbatical from teaching his apprenticeship program to pursue his personal research, continue writing, and help facilitate the transfer of DTB to the next in line.

He is looking for the right person (or small team of people) to step into the managerial role who can handle production, hiring, online marketing, accounting, inventory, purchasing, and setting up a new production facility.
