14. Gone Fishing

via heifer international

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime – Chinese proverb

It seems only appropriate to contemplate fishing given that this weekend is the “season opener” in Minnesota.  Biehus recommends Heifer International’s site as a great introduction to an approach to global service.  The organization is committed to the teaching of “fishing” so to speak.  There is also a companion site for parents and educators that has free extension activities for children from preschool to high school.
