This book was created for the course titled “Nature, Culture, & Landscape” taught by Professor Sara Adlerstein-Gonzalez at the University of Michigan School for Environment & Sustainability.

The objective was to create a book that uses the topic of urban gardening to teach young readers about the importance of environmental stewardship— respecting and caring for Earth and the diversity of life it sustains.

Through art and science, we can better understand complex environmental issues like access to food and water, loss of biodiversity, and land-use. Any reader, of any age, can make a difference in their community through forming stronger connections with people and the earth.
