Join us for an evening of storytelling!
Being human is wild. And we’ve collected a few stories that tell of a moment when we were closest to natural life, to our primary relationship; to earth, atmosphere, water, to weather.
Rachel Cook will start the evening sharing stories of her life from the chapter in Southwest Wisconsin on wooded acreage while building a
so-called cabin, wherein the line that made “outside” out and “inside” in was very thin.
The floor will then open for all to share their own stories.
Optional Potluck at 6:00 pm; Conversation starts promptly at 7:00 pm.
About our presenter, Rachel Cook:
From a childhood embedded within the state parks of NY and PA, Rachel Cook went on to study wild foods and medicine, perennial food production in agriculture, organic vegetable farming – and the lives of our food producers in this country. In NY, WI, IL and KY, Rachel lived and worked on farms and in wild places. She became an off-the-cuff phenologist, and developed as an observer of whole interactive systems; both ecological organization and societal organization.
Concurrently, Rachel worked in physical theatre, with particular focus in early cultural practice of using theatrical device in ritual to pray for or about food. She worked in community radio as a news analyst of environmental and conservation issues.
In the last five years she has focused her study on functional medicine; human anatomy, physiology and nutrition. In 2017, Rachel moved to Enright Village and shares a lovely home with her mother Gretchen.
