We are in need of a birch tree for our third collaborative celebration of trees. “OneTree” is a unique program that celebrates the life and offerings of one single tree, both as a member of the forest community and then as objects made from every part of the harvested tree.

Once we select a prime tree, artists, writers, makers, teachers, and scientists have the opportunity to visit the tree and propose projects involving the tree. After the tree is cut down, we will distribute various tree parts to participants for their individual projects that will be exhibited in the fall of 2024.

If you have a large, healthy, accessible birch tree on your property that could be used for our next OneTree project, please contact John Manthei, john@folk.school.

More info, and photos from our last project can be found here.
