Lilith Rogers is a writer of poetry, prose and plays who has spent 40 years as an organic gardener and environmental educator for young people.
She created and performs her one-woman show about the life and work of Rachel Carson because of her concern for our urgent environmental challenges. It is Lilith’s hope that the story of this remarkable and determined woman will help us rededicate our lives to environmental justice.
Rachel Carson was the marine biologist, conservationist and author, whose book Silent Spring, published in 1962, presented the science and raised the call against the use of DDT and other toxic chemicals that were the fruits of World War II. It has been widely credited with giving birth to the global environmental movement.
As Rachel said, “It is a wholesome and necessary thing for us to turn again to the earth and in the contemplation of her beauties to know the sense of wonder and humility.”
