Taste Traditions of Wisconsin: Seventh Generation Earth Ethics
Wisconsin's rich tradition of sustainability rightfully includes its First Americans who, along with people like Aldo Leopold, John Muir, and Gaylord Nelson, shaped its landscape and informed its "earth ethics." Dr. Patty Loew, author of Seventh Generation Earth Ethics: Native Voices of Wisconsin, will discuss the lives of several Native people who helped to sustain and nurture their nations in the past and present. These people understood the cultural gravity that kept their people rooted to their ancestral lands and acted in ways that ensured the growth and success of future generations. A book signing will follow the program, and a dinner highlighting the flavors of the season will be served.
