Fruit Trees & Food Justice for the Hawaiian People
 
Fruit trees serve as a stepping-stone toward empowerment by enlivening neighborhoods and motivating people to take control of their own wellbeing. Hawaii is in need of fruit trees and the comprehensive program designed by FTPF to address family nutrition, food justice and community welfare. Trees will be planted at schools and at family homes with a focus on low-income, Native Hawaiian communities. This fundraiser will allow us to build our local nurseries and grow thousands of organic trees!
Fruit Trees For Uganda
 
FTPF is returning to Uganda in April 2016 with the goal of planting 35,000 more fruit trees in an effort to provide access to sustainable nutrition, provide income for families in poverty & help clean the air. We will distribute trees directly to households in low-income areas & hold educational workshops on how to care for their orchards & most benefit from their harvest. Orchards will also be in schools, prisons, health clinics & orphanages to promote Uganda's health & healing. project reportread updates from the field

Fruit Tree 101
 
Fruit Tree 101 is a program that will create thriving fruit tree orchards in schoolyards around the world so students have a source of improved nutrition and environmental education. The outdoor edible classrooms will not only help clean the air and soil on campus while providing a source of fresh, sustainable, healthy nutrition, but they also give teachers an excuse to hold class outside when it's time for science lessons! project reportread updates from the field
