Event Description

Spring is the time for new life—for planting, for watering and for active hope! Following the huge loss of our arbor-elders in the Aug. 10 derecho, we have been doing the hard interior work of grieving, going deeper and learning. In spring, we will join in the communal celebration of planting and welcoming new life! We come together as a community once more to lean into the role of courageous visionaries, imagining and planting a whole new generation of baby trees, caring for the sacred Earth—including the soil, air and water—through ritual, song, poetry and prayer. Please join us as we sing songs of joy once again with the exultant Earth and ritualize the welcome of our beloved baby trees and the resplendence of the trees we have all around us! This online program via Zoom is free and is co-sponsored by Prairiewoods, Trees Forever, Indian Creek Nature Center, Backyard Abundance, Winding Pathways, Cornell College Chaplain & Spiritual Life, Coe College and People’s Unitarian Universalist Church.
