Join Cathy Hagadorn, director at Deer Pond Farm and volunteer Elissa Johnson, environmental science teacher for our first collaborative book club with the Sherman Library. We’ll be discussing the Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate?Discoveries from a Secret World by Peter Wohlleben (2016, 288 pp.) Peter Wohlleben, a forester presents scientific information throughout and describes how trees communicate and support one another much like a human family. Wohlleben also shares his deep love of woods and forests explaining the amazing processes of life, death, and regeneration he has observed. He speaks to the interconnectedness of nature, recognizing the role and impact of birds in the woods and forest.
