Episode 129 - Prairie Ridge And The Gillespie Family Farm The Natural Curiosity Project

    • Education

The Gillespie Farm in southern Illinois is more than 800 acres of agricultural fields; it also includes carefully managed prairies, wetlands, and woodlands. Jim and Patty Gillespie run the family farm, but the whole family is involved in caring for the natural world that surrounds them and provides them with their livelihood. Daughter Sarah is a nature-inspired artist; son Bob is a biologist and the site manager of the Prairie Ridge Nature Preserve; and son Will works with mining companies to help them reclaim land so that it can be returned to the wild.
