Urban Ecology

With climate change in the news, an urban core that has reached boiling point, and many children growing up without role models and with limited dreams – where is hope?

There is a quiet experiment in Milwaukee that is turning heads. It starts from the simplicity of getting a city kid exploring their neighborhood park. How is it that so much life, community, and opportunity can grow from this unlikely soil? It’s been called a miracle. It’s contagious. It’s spreading. It’s exciting. And it works!

This is a story of a group of ordinary people in a neighborhood who created something extraordinary.

You will discover… the power of getting a city kid outside in nature; that kindness works; how to say no while following the yes; the value of clarity and focus; how to find abundance within your own diverse community by simply and humbly asking for help; ten tried and tested rules for raising money (a lot of it!) while having a ton of fun doing it; a positive, believable, and very real vision for the future of our environment (we’ve got this!); and… how to join our movement.
