This Benefit is to help raise awareness about the precious life of the Verde River, as well as to inspire contributions to complete the purchase of the Verde River Headwaters Land Tract, which is home to 7 Springs that birth the River. Therefore, 100 percent of the proceeds will go to The Mother Earth Restoration Trust, a nonprofit organization committed to protecting the Springs by placing the land tract under a perpetual conservation easement.

We invite you to come and learn more about this initiative, while receiving the gifts of musicians and sound healers who come in devotion to bless and honor Earth as our sacred Mother.
