Trees of Tomorrow

Posted on January 2, 2018 by - Projects and Events

Guerrilla Grafters are excited about a new partner project, Trees of Tomorrow, in collaboration with Margaretha Haughwout, Cody Herrmann, and Julian Phillips, Social Practice Queens, and the John Bowne Agricultural High School. Initiated with Gregory Sholette and Randall Szott. True to form, it is a sprawling collaboration.

Trees of Tomorrow is a guided, speculative tour of the trees of Flushing, Queens — exposing the ways trees shape, and are shaped by, neighborhoods, economies, and soils of Flushing; a complementary self-guided tour publication, echoing a futuristic theme, to be distributed with registration materials; and a speculative workstation where we collectively collapse the nature/society divide through specific cultural uses of a sampling of Flushing’s trees and tree grafting. Trees of Tomorrow asks how to empower new naturalcultural futures that enable local solidarity and survival across species.”
