“Passion is lifted from the earth itself by the muddy hands of the young; it travels along grass-stained sleeves to the heart. If we are going to save environmentalism and the environment, we must also save an endangered indicator species: the child in nature.”
Richard LouvLast Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder

Halfway through the book I am reading for a project, I realize I need to do my part.

BPO’s new kid policy for foraging classes:

Kids under twelve are free with a parent or guardian

Kids aged 12 – 16 are half price ($25) with a parent or guardian
