Green Gab Podcast | Connecting with Nature to Connect with our Inner Green
With Dr. Katie Belisle-Iffrig gabbing about her book Going Green for the Genius. Dr. Katie discovered her love for nature at an early age. She came to work at the Kemper Center for Home Gardening at the Missouri Botanical Center in St. Louis and there worked with gardens and nature in many ways - butterfly gardens, youth gardens and was in on the ground floor of the plastic pot recycling program.
At heart, Dr. Katie sees herself as an educator, so writing her book was a natural step in her work to educate people on how their actions impact the environment and in turn, how the environment impacts human health. Her motivating factor was her daughters and she realized the importance of starting early with environmental education yet also educating people in all occupations and all walks of life.
