Richard Louv, Last Child in the Woods

Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods and The Nature Principle, examines nature-deficit disorder and how it impacts our children.  On tour, their daughter’s birth sent Deborah Paredez and Frank Guridy to Randy Jewart from Resolution Gardens to turn their lawn into organic food.

Daphne recalls family garden traditions and recommends native Monterrey oak to start a tree-planting tradition. Trisha shows how to grow, propagate and dry mint for those holiday recipes.
