Cedar Tree Poetics

“Cedar Tree came about when my wife and I were hiking in the forest one day and a gusher thunderstorm came out of nowhere, lightning and thunder and downpours. We found refuge under a cedar tree.”
– Jimmy Santiago Baca

The mission of cedar tree poetics is to improve the human condition; to advance knowledge through compassion and literacy, through excellence in learning, discovery and engagement; and to serve as diverse a community as we can, adolescents on the edge and incarcerated children and adults.
