An Interview with Diana Beresford-Kroeger
Planting Trees Can Save Us
by Lese Dunton

You may have read about scientist and author Diana Beresford-Kroeger in The New York Times or seen her interviewed by Jane Fonda on Fire Drill Fridays.

Ms. Beresford-Kroeger is uniquely skilled at helping us understand our spiritual and biological connection to forests - and provides the answers we need for climate renewal.

    Hospice Care:
    A Personal Perspective

    by Joel H. Straussner, Ph. D.
