I recently participated in a wood turning course at my university in Vermont with instructors Ralph Tursini and David Brynn. Ralph began co-teaching this course in 2007 with David combining their passion for wood uses and holistic forestry management. Over 300 students have produced hardwood bowls and experienced conservation work and the value adding process.
“Our ability to perceive quality in nature begins, as in art, with the pretty. It expands through successive stages of the beautiful to values as yet uncaptured by language.” ― Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac with Other Essays on Conservation from Round River
