The Almanac of Moss and Steel
I grew up in a pacific northwest suburb with the woods in my backyard. I have so many fond childhood memories of opening the gate of my back fence and stepping out into a wild space, ready to be explored. I didn’t realize how important it was to me until I moved to a highly populated city for college – an experience that I’m sure many can relate to. It’s a subtle feeling of emptiness. So what’s an urbanite to do? One could leave the city for a weekend trip into a nearby national park, but that requires planning, time, and resources – more of an occasional treat than a solution. Here lies the central goal of this publication: to inform you about the many ways that one can build a deep personal connection with urban nature. This involves re-framing your current experience as well as cultivating new experiences.
