As you know, through Voices Of Wilderness, we deeply want to share stories with you.
Stories that will make you travel, discover nature, get to know it better, and find out how you can, with your gifts and expertise, help safeguard it. Just by being yourself.
Sometimes we think we have to be a scientist, a minister, an anthropologist, or some other profession that looks so far from us, to act for the environment around us. But your qualities, ideas, and creativity can make a difference because your thoughts and impact are unique.
Today, we have chosen to tell you a story from a book called Planting An Idea, a guidebook to critical and creative thinking about environmental issues.
We will go through its pages, chapters, and themes so that you can always decide to read it and discover a world of novelties.
And how better to do it than with its authors? Jerry Apps calls himself a farm boy from Wisconsin who spent more than 30 years teaching at the university in Madison and Natasha Kassulke is a former journalist for a daily newspaper, the former editor of Wisconsin state environmental magazine, and a research communication instructor for the University of Madison.
Here is their story.
