This month we revisit environmental wellness. This month my guest is Dr. Chiara D'Amore- a community leader in environmental stewardship. She connects us to outdoor spaces through her non-profit organization- Community Ecology Institute- with projects aimed at everything from bringing more families into the woods and growing food to support local communities in need, to climate justice advocacy. It's hard to discuss anything but Coronavirus these days, so we do talk about how environmental policy can prevent pandemic, as well as how environmental policy might change in response to this pandemic. Most importantly, we discuss how connection to the soil and streams ends up connecting us to each other- thus supporting our mental and physical well being.
