farming & outdoors
Greg spent his favorite childhood summers at camp. He has appreciated the outdoors ever since. In 2015, he spent a weekend working on a farm in Wisconsin & another two days working at a vineyard & winery in California. He has written for different publications -- including Wisconsin State Farmer and Wisconsin Natural Resources. He has spoken at events for groups such as Illinois Holstein Association & Western United Dairymen. The books based on Greg's story &/or the companion workbooks &/or related posters have been used internally (i.e. with staff) or externally (i.e. with students) by farm & outdoor-related groups like Maryland Farm Bureau, Heritage Tractor, Gathering Waters, Wisconsin's Alliance for Land Trusts, The Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin, Kentucky Association for Environmental Education, The Water Council, Wisconsin Holstein Association, Wisconsin Soybean Association / Wisconsin Soybean Marketing Board, and Legend Seeds. Other organizations (i.e. Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation) have participated in The Elevator Project.
