Trees of Transformation is the first in a series of wake up storybooks about the people who are taking a stand for Nature in the midst of corporate giants.

I’m one of them.

My concerns about deforestation, climate change and global warming have transformed me into a full time activist.  Discover what I learned as a social entrepreneur, on a mission of organic reforestation, competing with international non-profit greenwash. Meet the people who inspire me, and deepen my determination to find solutions, as well as what gives me hope.

Watch a video on HOPE from the compelling Awakening the Dreamer symposium, and listen to original music composed by a Brazilian social justice attorney who’s also an organic tree grower. That alone should be a good reason to get this $2 book, with all elements embedded!

Innovate, partner and find solutions with me, creating the future we all want for our children.  Uplift guaranteed!

To buy the book visit Trees of Transformation.

Alana Lea is a voice for the rainforest. Born in Rio de Janeiro, Alana moved to the United States as soon as she could walk, and only learned that she emerged from the most diverse and endangered rainforest on earth, half a century later.

She instinctively cultivated a passion for the plant kingdom as a horticulturalist for more than thirty years, while later telling its stories as a botanical artist. In addition to the creation of Tropiflora, a successful tropical nursery business, these years yielded exhibits of her botanical watercolors and digital collages at the Bruce Museum of Arts and Sciences, the Smithsonian Institution and Museum of Natural History.

She is the Founder of Rainforest ECO and Rainforest ECObank projects.
