Ronner, author of the book W. H. Hudson: The Man, The Novelist, The Naturalist, who will introduce us to Hudson, one of the first authors of works in the “eco-literature” genre.  We also will be joined by Sy Montgomery, author and Board Member of The Rainforest Conservation Fund, who will introduce us to the Green Mansions rainforest habitat, with its amazing plant life and animal inhabitants, and bring us up-to-date on rainforest conservation issues and efforts.  In addition, we will be joined by Alexandra Jamieson, CHHC, AADP, author, vegan chef and holistic nutrition expert, who will introduce us to the vegan diet that was so important to Rima, to our Green Mansions story, and to establishing healthy and sustainable lifestyle choices in today’s world.
