The book, Stepping Into Nature, captures the spirit of community collaboration, volunteerism and documents how Rockheight’s students became more in touch with nature and the importance of greening their school through photography, video and the arts.
It was wonderful to see my vision come to life and have Rockheights Middle School green their facilities at the same time. In addition to my photographs and writing, the book features a fine inclusion of student work ranging from writing, cartoons and artwork and photos.
A professional video also documents the story and can be found on the Creatively United for the Planet Society website.
