Here's a talk I gave last year. I am not too proud of the delivery, but I this was my first opportunity to share two of my best programs at the school, Horticulture and Noesis.
"We need our kids to be able to find their place in our community and in the world but not in contradiction to our environment. We need to come face to face with nature if we are ever going to truly find harmony with it. In the same vein coming face to face with others and holding complex ideas and an ability to grasp it using our own wit and wisdom will make our world a better place to live for us, for our kids and for the nature around us."
