Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard is coming to San Francisco next week -- to play a show, sure, but really to plant trees in a special S.F. neighborhood to be announced later. On Saturday, Oct. 18. Gossard will be digging dirt in partnership with Earthkeepers which aims to make the world better and stuff by planting trees and gardens (their goal is 1 million trees planted by 2010). After a full day of gardening, Gossard will perform that same night at the Grand, but the only way fans can get tickets is by putting a couple trees in the ground themselves.
