    John Caddy's current project, Morning Earth, spun out of John's work with the Center for Global Environmental Education on his Self-Expressing Earth (SEE) program. John spent many years as an adjunct professor in Hamline's School of Education. Morning Earth "celebrates the confluence of art and ecology."
