Stan and Jan were always concerned about conserving Mother Earth and eating healthy foods. Over the years, they wrote a number of Berenstain Bears’ stories dealing with these topics.
As we celebrate Earth Day on April 22, let’s all find at least one simple way to be green! In the Berenstains’ newest book, The Berenstain Bears Go Green, Mama, Papa, Brother, Sister, and Honey are doing just that!
Two Earthsaver Calendars were published in 1992 and 1993 by Random House.
Now grandson Sam is following in Stan and Jan’s footsteps. A graduate of Eastern Mennonite University with a B.A in Environmental Sustainability, Sam spent a season in NYC working on two urban farms studying the practices of city produce production. With a passion for building a community around youth-oriented agriculture, Sam helped found Project GROWS in the Harrisonburg, Virginia, area where he spends his days sheet mulching, harvesting, and teaching about sustainable farming.Project GROWS is a 10-acre, non-profit youth-oriented community farm with a mission of improving the overall health of children and youth in the tri-county area through community farming that includes hands-on experience, nutrition education, and access to healthy food.
