The Problem

Seedlings Kindertribe is an outdoor preschool that I recently started in my 1.5 acre backyard. We are rooted in Waldorf education and inspired by Scandinavian Forest Schools. I love Jane Goodall, and have always looked up to her more than any other human. I have designed my school program with her values at the heart and soul of what we do. I strive to make the world a better place by providing a nature-based, all day outdoor schooling for children ages 2-5. We are located in Fort Collins, Colorado. Our backyard is a blank canvas. We only moved in here a year ago, and have not yet had the opportunity to plant any trees. Our forest school needs a forest - or at least a few special trees! As a nature lover and environmentalist, I would love nothing more than to be able to plant a tree in our backyard with my nature school class of 12 children. I would also love to have each child paint a picture of the tree every year as it grows, and share something that they love about it. I would like to dedicate this tree to Jane Goodall, and make a special sign with my favorite Jane Goodall quote: “You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”

Our Plan

With this funding, I would have enough money to purchase one or two trees. I would host a tree planting ceremony with all of the children and families of the school. We would learn about ways trees help the environment, talk about Jane Goodall, and how we can take care of the Earth. Each child would have a hand in planting and caring for our tree. Every single tree makes a difference! My little nature home preschool is my reason for hope, and I would love to provide them with this opportunity.
