A collection of area artists, environmentalists and spiritualists are about to undertake an experiment. They plan to bring together a varied group of individuals, provide a stimulating blend of “close encounters” with nature, history, culture and ecology, and see what happens. That’s the premise of the New Wind Folk School – a weeklong program sponsored by the Greater Milwaukee Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

The first program, called "On Earth as it is in Heaven", kicks off Monday in Port Washington and is based at the Christ the King Lutheran Church. WUWM Environmental Reporter Susan Bence traveled to “Port” to meet and talk with several folk school organizers.
