Laurie Seeman is an environmental artist, naturalist, educator, and leading water activist. She studied with Jennifer Greene through the biodynamic certificate course at the Pfeiffer Center 15 years ago and became both fascinated with water and activated to bring water education and greater understanding to the Hudson Valley regional community, which she has done consistently since that time through educating decision-makers; bringing water programs to schools; founding Strawtown Studio, a place for nature, art and science education; founding the Sparkill Creek Watershed Alliance; and stepping up to co-lead the Rockland Water Coalition in the successful, nine-year effort to prevent an unnecessary desalination plant from being built in the prime nursery of the Hudson River estuary by a global water company. Through her experiences as a change-maker, she has gained a special knowledge that she is passing on. She continues to develop her own understanding and relationship with water and create innovative ways for giving a voice to water and bringing people closer to their understanding of their own true essence and of their interconnectedness with nature. Her work is intended to inspire and lead to new thinking for taking action in one's life and community. For the past 5 years, she has been studying with Joanna Macy, deep ecologist, in "The Work that Reconnects".
