My husband met John Caddy at an art fair years ago. John asked if he could send his daily photos and poems to us. At first I didn't pay much attention. Then at some point I decided to emulate John, that I would do a sketch of some natural inspiration on a daily basis. This lasted about six weeks. I am amazed by his consistency. Year after year we have received his inspirational work... Almost every day. I am a glass artist specializing in images of the natural world and his work is very useful to me. Some of my own efforts are used in hospital settings where I hope patients and staff will be uplifted. Morning Earth has become a part of my own work.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

find new ways to broaden its ability to transmit its influence to more people on a worldwide basis. Enhancing our appreciation of the natural world gives us something we can share instead of something that drives us apart.

Ways to make it better...

I 'd taken the time to read the poems as well as looking at the photos, which I must admit is what I do most often.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

I've been an artist for as long as I can remember but it wasn't until I met John Caddy and Morning Earth that I found a home with other Artist Naturalists. I feel a profound connection to his mission and will be forever grateful for his insights, knowledge, creativity, vision and generosity. I find the site to be informative (my daughter has referred to it many times for school assignments), welcoming (there are opportunities for anyone to contribute), and spiritually uplifting ("an antidote for environmental despair"). An invaluable resource. Thank you, John.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the audience it brings to Artist/Naturalists and I've benefitted from the abundance of information about the workings of the Earth.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find more ways to let more people know about it.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

finding a connection with others who feel a profound connection with the Earth and express that connection through their art.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

n/a

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

increase its outreach and have a greater impact on the way in which people see and treat the natural environment.

Ways to make it better...

I'd found out about it sooner : )

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting people to take notice and respond.

One thing I'd also say is that...

it's a reliable and consistent haven.

John Caddy has created a valuable and wonderful resource for any and all interested in Nature with Morning Earth. The amount of quality content in his website is nothing short of staggering - from resources for educators, to detailed information about ecology, great writing and photography, to nature -focused art. John's contribution to the world should not be underestimated, nor overlooked. He deserves a vast audience to appreciate all that he does. Yes, I am one of then featured artist/naturalists on the site, but would have written the same review, if that were not the case.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

sharing his marvelous website with others.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

John Caddy's wisdom, his daily photo/writing emails.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Spread the word about the wonder and magnificence of the natural world to an even greater audience.

Morning Earth expresses one of the most profound truths rediscovered in the post Newtonian era we are now entering and that is that we exist within interconnected systems and nested subsystems that are all animated by a universal energy we are on the verge of discovering. Such a world view leads to an understanding of the oneness of nature; no longer nature apart, now to be human is to understand and act with the intention of interdependence and commonality with all manifestations of form and substance. ~EBWuersten~

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Insight into the interconnectedness of humans to all of nature.
