PODCAST. SUSTAINABLE LIVING. ADVOCACY.
An artist-initiated, eco-project, founded by Pamela Booker, Where’s Your Tree? is a Sustainable Living Advocate in the partnering of art and natural resources as mediating tools, in the face of historic, environmental ruin of the planet and black and brown lives. This advocacy occurs in areas of eco-art, media and urban-agriculture, social justice, health and wellness.
This vision originated with the Commencement Address (see Bio) that I presented to a graduating class of Goddard College students. Of course, I thought I’d posed the question as an instructive metaphor to them on how to nurture their outrage, genius, and conviction. Then I came to understand that we often pursue what we need to learn. As a result, I began taking small but deliberate steps and actions toward defining for myself responses to the originating question.
To map expressions of (in)justice, racial and social equity, our moral responsibility to the planet and one another. To reclaim the sustainable applications and remedies known to our ancestors in lifetimes before this country’s “founding” and to remember they are accessible to us now. To create restorative forums and funding opportunities that affirm our sustainable future by supporting artists, healers, urban growers/farmers and educators.
On the Where’s Your Tree? podcast series we meet folks whose practices remind us that we live in the world as generative “caretakers.” They offer liberating stories and tools of resistance, joy, witnessing and documenting ourselves.
