Thomas Berry often spoke about the children. “It takes a universe to educate a child.” he said. In this webinar Jeanne Clark will share how she has introduced children to the Universe and helped them experience awe and wonder as they connected to the place where they live. Jeanne has brought the lessons of the universe to the children in both a classroom setting and at Homecoming Farm.
