Host Traven Rice speaks with the folks from Nonhuman Teachers, a new non-profit that takes a creative approach to ecological storytelling.
Executive Director Christian Cummings, Events Coordinator Joey Valley and Board Director Sandeep Rangi spoke with host Traven Rice about the newly formed project that aims to help deepen the relationship between humans and the natural world.
The non-profit sprang out of their creative studio and Cactus Store based in LA. They opened an east coast Cactus Store here in the Lower East Side, which includes a seasonal greenhouse and gathering space at 5 Essex, next to the old Schames Paint Store, a few years ago.
Their events are always surprising and experiential, and the programming engages a wide array of people by offering creative ways to talk about ecology.
