“What a great idea. My father was really moved. (He was expecting a tie.)”
“I was so touched by your gift, and to know that my 70th birthday was the occasion of new life on a small part of the earth.”
The EarthSea Institute is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to help single individuals have an impact on global concerns. Tree Life Connection is one of its main projects, with future plans to include planting sites throughout the world. EarthSea’s other focus is Antarctica and the current efforts to preserve the continent in its pristine state.
EarthSea has strong ties to the music industry, and in January 1991 will release Polar Shift, a compilation album–featuring major instrumental artists–to benefit The Cousteau Society in its efforts to save Antarctica.
