We tapped into curiosity for for many of the program participants. The people that chose to come to our book discussion were like-minded individuals for the most part. They were naturally curious types that enjoy books and living in a way that leaves a lesser footprint in the world. We had teachers, a vegetarian, a former librarian, gardeners, a scientist, and a machinist among others. This led to some lively discussions where we touch on building theories and models for how to improve life here in our rural county and worldwide. We discussed making good decisions that would harm our planet and environment less. We had a lot of discussion about global warming and dwindling resources. We discussed things we observed in our own lives that impacted areas of life such as food, problem solving, and education. They are looking forward to another round of science related book discussions.
