Creation Care with Scott Sabin

Since 1995, Scott Sabin has served as the Executive Director of Plant With Purpose ( an international Christian organization that empowers the poor in rural areas around the world where poverty is caused by deforestation. During that time the organization has grown from a single program in one country to include a staff of over 150 foresters, agronomists and facilitators in six countries who have empowered farmers in more than 300 communities to plant over 10 million trees.

Through journal articles, public speaking and, most recently though his book, Tending to Eden, Mr. Sabin has become an advocate for reforestation as a key component of sustainable community development around the world.

Prior to working for Plant With Purpose, he served for seven years in the Navy. He holds a BS in Political Science from Oregon State University and an MA in International Relations from the University of San Diego. He and his wife Nancy, a nurse practitioner, have two children, Amanda (13) and Danny (10). Scott enjoys sailing and writing when he has the time.
