Peach Tree Project

Established in 2018, the Peach Tree Project is a collaboration between Eileen Braziel/Desert Design , Pat Hall, artists, and non-profit organizations from the Navajo Nation.

A tax-deductible planting project begins April 27, 2018 in Canyon de Chelly to bring back a once economic and symbolic value of the Peach Tree.

Each 200 USD contribution will be used for  planting a  peach tree  on the Navajo Nation.  This on-going adopt a peach tree  program on the reservation is an immediate and positive action to a devastating war between the Navajo people and the US government before a treaty was signed in 1868 by Manuelito, the Navajo leader at that time. Our goal is to plant  1000 trees in three years.

Purchase handmade products Inspired by Peach Tree Project

Eileen Braziel and Pat Hall collaborated to feature Dine'  furniture, lighting, and design products on-line for purchase and shipping. The origin of these unique designs were  inspired by the  traditional  churro wool weavers on the Navajo Nation to create  and continue their  craft into a modern style , and where Hall and Braziel set their goals  to connect artists to the mainstream contemporary design market.  Andrew Connors, Director of Albuquerque Museum of Art, discusses the design:"They are innovative, imagination expanding, and stunningly original. " 

All Churro products are handmade and unique. In this pod-cast Ron Garnanez talks about the sacred Navajo Churro :
