Hi, my name is Corva Rose, and I'm raising funds for a (hopefully electric!) vehicle for Tree School, whose mission is to plant and steward climate-resilient habitat + the next generation of tree canopy here in Albuquerque.
Why this mission?
- Albuquerque’s urban tree canopy has been dying off steadily, and the next generation of our urban forest is currently being planted. Another forest is emerging, and we are part of this movement!
- Our wildlife family has also been losing habitat at an alarming rate, and we are part of the movement to increase the habitat quilt, one garden at a time.
- Albuquerque is shifting from zone 7a to zone 9a over the next 100 years, so the time is now to help us all make this transition in a grounded and adaptive way, not from a place of fear, but by transforming that fear into joy, generosity, and love.
How will a vehicle help? We offer Playshops, Mentorship, and Private Sessions and need transportation for all of these. In addition, we collaborate with local non-profits to install pocket habitats and plant trees, and this vehicle will help us move and groove.
