Charlie Tennessen lives and works on Anarchy Acres, a tiny farm in Wisconsin that he shares with donkeys, sheep, chickens, goats, nature, and the crops that sustain their collective lives. He is the author of "Kitchen Chaos: Recipes from a Wisconsin Homestead," as well as the beloved Team Anarchy Stories for Children series.
Chuck has embraced environmental advocacy since his childhood on a small Wisconsin dairy farm. For over five years his compelling “Earthbound” newspaper column has woven fables of everyday life into the fabric of the global environment. The book Because We’re All Forever Earthbound, a collection of the best of these essays, is embellished with artwork from over fifty young Driftless Area artists.
