With Wendy Nadherny Fachon of Story Walking Radio Hour
What is food forest gardening? How can educators leverage it for impactful learning? What does corporative learning have to do with this? Wendy Fachon has her own food forest garden, and she sees great potential for food forest gardening in environmental education. She also shares her insights about nature drawing as a powerful pedagogical tool and tells a story about a serendipitous discovery of Red Mulberry trees.
Wendy Nadherny Fachon hosts the Story Walking Radio Hour, which focuses on environmental education and sustainable living content. She is Rhode Island's regional editor for Green Teacher and writes articles for Natural Awakenings Magazine's Boston edition and D7RN's Sustainable Living News. Wendy is also an Abundance Ambassador for Food Forest Abundance. As an environmental educator, she currently develops and teaches Nature Drawing curriculum for The Empowerment Factory, based in Pawtucket, RI. She is solutions-oriented, which requires acknowledging the problems, understanding the underlying causes, and identifying solutions that are based on sound science.
