Push the boundaries of how you interact with the forests and trees around you. Nick Zandstra of Knock-On-Wood SawWorks will lead the audience in re-imagining how humans relate to the natural world, through mindsets vastly different than dominant American attitudes about land and wilderness. Discuss specific ways to engage with forests and cultivate your own reverent approach to the woods. 

Nick Zandstra is a logger and miller whose work is rooted in a deep appreciation for and understanding of the complex web of interconnections within the forested landscape. Nick lives on 43 acres of productive woodland in Topsham, VT with his wife and two children. 

Linger after the talk to connect with Nick and others who care about sustainable forest management, over treats from the YesterKitchen! This event is part of Yestermorrow's 2019 Speaker Series, on select Thursdays February through May.
