curing nature deficit disorder

This is a story by my kid sister Tonia Shoumatoff Foster about her daughter Zoe, who is a teacher in Maine and is taking her kids out into the natural world, which any child, given the exposure to it, eats up. It is amazing to me how few schools in America have a course that gives its kids basic literary in their local flora and flora, the other life forms and beings that are living with. http://themillbrookindependent.com/environment/curing-%E2%80%98nature-deficit-disorder%E2%80%99-children-contact-nature
