We are in summer right now, so this information is super important. Download and read as soon as possible.

A finalized version is pending publication in print and on the web with a better layout and upgraded graphics. Until then, we thought it was important (urgent!) that you have this info right now while it’s hot, so here is a link to a download of the draft copy.

Native Cultures - Seri People at Tree of Life Nursery
Tree of Life Nursery is honored to host a group of artisans from the indigenous Seri (Comcáac) tribe. Hailing from the arid coast of Sonora, Mexico, the Seri are famous for their amazing basketry, beautiful necklaces of shell, bead and bone, and elegant ironwood carvings. This special event will begin with a cultural exchange, as the Acjachemen people welcome the Seri to their ancestral land, followed by a traditional Seri dance and ceremonial songs. These Seri artisans will have their finest items available for sale, and in the spirit of “fair trade,” 100 percent of the sale proceeds will stay with the artisans. Stay tuned for more information.
