Tree of Life Ceremony

April 20 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Tree of Life Event is a celebration of life for families that have lost a loved one due to opioid overdose or gun violence on our city streets. We honor 15 families annually in the Northeast Ohio area with a “Tree of Life” dedicated to their beloved family members. We acknowledge that your loved one had value, and they should be remembered and celebrated.

Request a Tree: If your family was affected by opioid overdose or gun violence, RSVP to request a tree and to participate in this tree planting and celebration. Each family will be supported by an OSU Master Gardener in the planting of The Tree of Life.

Request to attend as a Guest or Volunteer. RVSP in the registration link. https://www.flipcause.com/secure/cause_pdetails/MTk5ODQ0#


Our Nature Forum Series 2024

Healing the Planet, Healing Communities, Healing Ourselves

A series of programs engaging communities at the intersections of personal leadership, trauma, healing, and the environment scheduled across spring of 2024 in the third annual Our Nature Series. Through the series, we will more deeply explore… 

  • How the climate crisis exacerbates issues already affecting health equity
  • How actions for the environment help to heal and address oppressive systems
  • Making reparations with nature
  • Connecting to land to begin healing trauma (Gun violence, planting trees, nature deficit disorder, mental health, food apartheid)
  • Elevating methods for nonviolent community organizing

Join us for conversations and events centered around sustainability, climate, and environmental action around our region.

Our Nature 2024 is generously sponsored by:
