The way I wrote a book was not traditional, but I doubt that is much of a surprise to most.
Wait, did you catch that? I just wrote a book!
This adventure started two years ago when Peter and Jean Storer offered us support for the purpose of writing a book. Without any request from us, they felt that the Urban Ecology Center story needed to be told. What followed was a little bit of luck and some awesome opportunities.
A chance conversation with an old college friend introduced me to Difference Press out of Washington DC.

We are excited to share that the Urban Ecology Center's new book is now available! It's called Urban Ecology: a Natural Way to Transform Kids, Parks, Cities, and the World and the author is our Executive Director, Ken Leinbach.
The book shares the story of the beginning of the Urban Ecology Center and our growth into three vibrant Milwaukee branches. It includes our lessons learned along the way such as how to find abundance in our community, the power of prototypes, and how to raise money.
