Pearl Jam's Stone Gossard Goes Tree Planting
Stone Gossard of Pearl Jam isn’t a stranger to Ecorazzi. So it probably comes as no surprise that he had some fun getting those guitar-strumming hands dirty yesterday at a Timberland eco event held at the Mass Audubon Boston Nature Center in Boston. Gossard, joined by singer Barbara “Boots” Ireland and two hundred other activists, planted over 350 trees.
After the planting, Stone rocked out at the Wilbur Theatre. “It’s a good fit. I get to play some shows and also raise awareness about a project I’m excited about,” he said.
“Dig It,” the Timberland-sponsored multi-city eco initiative, is brining artists and activists together to celebrate the environment and music (what could be better than that combo?). Yesterday was only the first of these tree-planting, song-loving events.
Want to catch one of these cool concert/Earth-care playdates? There’s still time to play in the dirt: Stone & co. will be in New York on Saturday, LA on October 11, and in San Francisco on October 18.
