Meet Sylivia and her citrus trees...

Sylivia and her citrus trees

Meet Sylivia, a resident of the Butiki Mataala village in Uganda and a participant in our fruit tree giveaway last year. 

We visited with her and other past recipients during our trip to Uganda in April to see how their trees were doing, as well as offer aftercare suggestions. In the above photo, Sylivia proudly shows her one-year-old citrus tree and beams with pride at the fact that she has had 100% survival rate for all her trees! That means that every tree she received from FTPF is well on it's way to producing fruit, oxygen, and life for her and her family.

Thank you Sylivia, and to all those in the village who are creating thriving food forests for their families. We are incredibly grateful to be working with this village and so many others in Uganda!

Miigwech to the Saginaw Chippewa & White Earth Nations

Tobacco and sacred water blessing of the new trees
Tobacco and sacred water blessing of the new trees

We just wrapped up our tree-planting trips to the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe and the White Earth Nation, and we are feeling humbled and excited by the work done over the past couple of weeks.

220 fruit trees were blessed by their respective tribes before being planted on tribal lands, where they will serve the surrounding communities for generations. Orchard sites include a senior center, behavioral health treatment facility, a center for native rights, a community farm, a tribal center, and even a few at tribal members' homes. 

The seventh fire of Anishinabe tradition is indeed burning strong across these lands, and we are very honored to contribute towards the fight for food freedom and native sovereignty through the planting of fruit trees.

Miigwech for the continued support of the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation's Trees for Tribes program, and here's to a fruitful future for all native peoples!

Fruit Tree Planting on the Big Island in August!

Aloha, and thank you for your continued support of the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation's work in Hawai'i!

Our team is gearing up for another fruit-tree-planting-bonanza as we organize the final details for our trip back to the Big Island this August. We plan to plant hundreds of trees primarily on school campuses in order to bring outdoor, edible classrooms to Hawaiian students and healthy, fresh fruit to families.

From Kona to Kohala to Hilo, your support is helping fruit trees find their forever homes at schools around the island, and creating food freedom for Hawaiians for generations to come.

Mahalo nui loa!
