Sneak peak of Auction Items…
What makes this auction truly special is that every dollar raised contributes directly to the local Sonoma County community’s well-being. (Tax Benefits: Donating to a non-profit organization like Teravana during the holiday season can offer tax benefits.)
Through the creation of a “Living Library” comprised of redwoods, sequoias, oaks, native trees, and edible fruit trees, alongside the preservation of existing trees, Teravana serves as a model forest. This undertaking enhances biodiversity, soil health, water filtration, aids in wildfire mitigation, and strengthens carbon sequestration.
Teravana also plays a pivotal role as a community hub and educational center, offering valuable learning experiences to local schoolchildren and community members. It serves as an inspiring example of ecological restoration and climate resilience. Moreover, nearby K-12 schools in Sonoma County actively participate in the Tree School program.
By empowering more stewards with the knowledge and skills to plant and care for forests, we’re not only making a local impact but also contributing to a more environmentally sustainable world on a global scale.
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Teravana nurtures the symbiotic relationship between human health and planetary well-being through rigorous community outreach, educational initiatives, and environmental advocacy.
Through our programs and initiatives such as the Living Tree Library, Awakened Spirit, Mindful MD, and Tree School, Teravana seeks to reciprocally contribute to the restoration of the planet through the betterment of human well-being. We aspire that individuals leave our programs as agents for change for themselves and the environment.
