Why Our Name?
“Ever” is a word rooted with emotion, time, and permanence–meanings which resonate with, and define, our mission. In reaching for our goals we aspire to pass knowledge on to others through the stories we tell and to nurture a community of collaborators who want to do the same. As a community we aspire to be the trusted experts, or “mavens” of change that shape our relationship with the living world.
Why Tree Rings?
Ancient trees are regarded as a source of knowledge and strength, providing a link between our world today, the natural one of the past, and the sustainable environment of the future. A tree’s growth rings, much like our own fingerprints are a unique identifier, as well as a document of history. In them we see not only the life of a tree, but also that of the planet, our ancestors, and ourselves.
