Do you wonder what secrets the woodlands hold? Have you been trying to learn to identify trees? Can you sense that trees are wise and benevolent beings, but science seems to relegate them to being things that fit into categories? Treewise is a course of study that will introduce you to trees as personalities. Trees are definitely not people but they have communities, language, move around, and have been helping humans since our beginning. Five classes, held in five different locations, in different times of the year, give students a chance to meet lots of trees and get to know them and their communities. This is a study which will ask you to get to know trees on a more personal level. We will provide a study guide, a notebook and access to our Facebook Treewise group which includes videos, photos and ongoing discussions of trees. You can enter the class at any time; please contact us for details, the cycle of classes repeats every year. You will have homework to do relative to which class you are on and be able to access videos on youtube to further your tree learning. You will never have to "catch up" if you miss a class. Entering the class entitles you to come to 5 events.
