New Peach Tree Project Products Available
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.
