Get a feel for your food with Heal the Planet...
For 25 years, philanthropist Ken Fisher, sat on an idea for how to transform learning into a supportive, experiential environment based on mindfulness. Up sprouted Heal the Planet. A 501(c)(3) non-profit based on the notion that like a seed, with a little support, we all have the potential to make a huge impact.
The Seeds Project
The aim of the SEED (Sustainable Energy EDucation) Project is to educate and empower youth in making conscious choices that are healthy for both them and the planet.
Whether we choose to leave the water off while we brush our teeth or not means saving 3 to 5 gallons of this precious commodity. Each one of us could be saving 2,400 gallons of water annually!
