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’s a quiet experiment in Milwaukee that may be turning heads. It starts with the simplicity of getting a city kid exploring their neighborhood park. How is it that such a lot life, community, and opportunity can grow from this unlikely soil? It’s been known as a miracle. It’s contagious. It’s spreading. It’s exciting. And it works!
This is the story of a group of peculiar people in a neighborhood who created something odd.
Readers will discover… the power of getting a city kid outside in nature; that kindness does work; how to say no at the same time as following the yes; the value of clarity and focus; how to find abundance within their own diverse community by simply and humbly asking for help; ten tried and tested rules for raising money (a large number of it!) at the same time as having a ton of fun doing it; a positive, believable, and very real vision for the way forward for the environment (we’ve got this!); and… how to enroll in the Urban Ecology movement.
