Tree Dreams

Tree Dreams has two components: Tree Dreams: A Novel  and its companion project, the Tree Dreams tree tagging campaign, which leapt from the pages of the book long before the novel was completed.

The design collective Cumbersome Multiples helped dream up the Tree Dreams tree tagging kits and, with their antique letterpress and design brilliance, made that dream come to life. Since we made the first Tree Dreams kits in 2012, hundreds of Tree Dreams taggers have seeded the world with dreams of interconnection and teachers have adapted Tree Dreams for the classroom.

“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.” ~Yoko Ono

Anyone can be a Tree Dreams tagger.  You can get kits on, submit pictures of your tags, see the ever-growing record of the ideas that sustain us all—kindness, wildness, stewardship, interconnection—and a map of inspiration’s reach.
