i made the connection at 5 years old that the meat on my plate came from a life I would rather see alive, I haven't eaten meat since! 35 years of not eating meat and 20 of those years I've been vegan!

As far back as I can remember. My grandpa loved being outside. He had bird feeders, and he owned cats and dogs. He loved being outside and planting a garden and planting trees. Blue Spruce was his favorite. He loved flower gardening. So I learned from him.

One of my greatest honors as a kid was earning the St Frances Award for love of God's creatures. I believe recognizing a child's love of nature, respect for the environment and kindness to animals is important to developing a strong bond with nature as an adult.
