Forest People Stories

Taught by Aaron Sawatsky Kingsley

Class begins 10/15/2018, ends 10/24/2018


We’ll examine our relationship to trees and forests through story, in fairytales, mythology, legends, and in our own spiritual heritage. Next we’ll think about ways the vast New World forests affected colonizers and shaped attitudes today. We’ll ponder how forests lurk in our memory and what they have meant to us. Finally, we’ll widen the lens a bit to look at our place, Goshen, and tell the forest/tree story of our bio-geography. Storytelling participation will be encouraged throughout! Aaron Sawatsky Kingsley is the Goshen City Forester.
