Trees of Tomorrow
Trees of Tomorrow (ToT) 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; and a speculative workstation where, in collaboration with teens from John Bowne High School Agricultural Department, ToT collectively collapses the nature/society divide through art, stories and cultivations of Flushing’s trees and tree grafting. Trees of Tomorrow asks how to empower new natural cultural futures that enable local solidarity and survival across species.
