"Each new Generation has the opportunity to carry on the ancient tradition of growing Native seeds and passing a living legacy on to the next generation. Through story and song this performance explores the connections between people, plants and Native gardens. These gentle, humorous, nurturing stories also lead us on a journey through the cycles of the seasons and the changes that take place around us, and within us."
Michael is the creator and coauthor of many award-winning books such as Keepers of the Earth, Keepers of the Animals, Keepers of Life, Keepers of the Night and Native American Gardening. His most recent books are Everyday Herbs in Spiritual Life: A Guide to Many Practices and Abraham's Bind & Other Bible Tales of Trickery, Folly, Mercy and Love. He has written many magazine articles and his feature articles have appeared in many newspapers and his op-ed pieces have been carried over Reuters International News Service.
In 1984 Michael founded a service called P.E.A.C.E.® — Programs for Environmental Awareness and Cultural Exchange. P.E.A.C.E.® promotes understanding, awareness, appreciation and stewardship as the foundation for building a harmonious, sustainable relationship between people and Earth, and among the cultures of the world.
