Call of the Forest: “A Day with the Daughters of the Earth”
Attendees at our Call of the Forest: Water, Climate, Spirit conference last month were captivated and motivated to action by the speakers at the day-long gathering inspired by botanist and environmental visionary Diana Beresford-Kroeger. If you missed the talks or just want to hear the panels again, tune in to “Post-Carbon Radio” on at 9 am on Fridays (April 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29) 90.5 FM or stream at: kwmr.org. Or read, “A Day with the Daughters of the Earth” by writer Jonah Raskin in the Point Reyes Light and "Calls for Billions of People to Plant Billions of Trees" by John Berger in the Huffington Post.
Finally, if you attended, watch your email for our survey. We'd love to know what your experience was like.
