The Nature Seed is a practical and philosophical guide to sharing the wonders of the natural world with your children.

While children spend less time outdoors than ever, adults also live in a time of chronic disconnection from nature. How, then, do we rewild childhood?

The Nature Seed is a practical and philosophical guide to sharing the wonders of the natural world with children. It's a manual for finding awe in the cracks of the pavement and magic on a walk around the block. It offers a radical vision that calls for a new kinship with nature in both town and countryside with creative ideas and activities to nurture your child's love for the wild drawn from extensive experience. For parents and adults with children in their lives, the Nature Seed is an inspiring cry for wild play, peace and adventure for all.
