About the One Tree Project //
The One Tree porject is a partnership between The Folk School and OneTree Alaska, a program of the University of Alaska Fairbanks. In the summer of 2009, both organizations collaborated on the original “OneTree” program; selecting and felling a birch for use by community artists, makers, teachers, and scientists. The projects seeks to involve community members in drawing inspiration from and utilizing every bit of a single birch tree, which was located on The Folk School’s property.
