And, of course, the book shares the importance of our mission. From the book jacket:
"It starts from the simplicity of getting a city kid exploring their neighborhood park. How is it that so much life, community, and opportunity can grow from this unlikely soil?"
As we continue to see success in Milwaukee, folks all over the world are reaching out and asking how is it possible that we are helping kids with their academic performance and at the same time limiting crime in parks and changing the dynamic of the city’s conversation about the environment.
We think that our story and our mission can be duplicated in any city of the world, and we would like to show you how it is done! This book is a tool to help transform kids, parks, cities and the world.
We hope you enjoy it!
