School Orchard Projects for Title I Schools
 
2 weeks, 12 schools, 200 fruit trees, & hundreds of students planting fruit trees! With the ever-increasing rates of childhood obesity & diet related illnesses in children, it is critical to introduce our youth to the wonder & importance of fresh foods. Schoolyard orchards excite & fascinate students, & create the next generation of environmental stewards. This project will plant over 200 trees with Arizona students, bringing the beauty & bounty of fruit trees into the cafeteria & playground!
Fruit Trees For Uganda
 
FTPF is returning to Uganda in April 2017 with the goal of planting 25,000 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
