Planting hope in Hawaii

Dear friends of FTPF,

Thank you for continuing to support FTPF and our work to bring food equality and food sovereignty to Hawai'i. We believe fruit trees are an essential part of creating healthier, stronger Hawaiian communities, and with every tree planted believe we are planting hope for future island generations...

He ali`i ka Aina, ha kauwa ke kanaka...
The Land is a Chief, Man is its Servant...

 -Hawaiian Proverb

In this spirit, we are planning for another round of projects in August 2019 focused on Hawai'i Island schools and youth-based programs. Please consider making a donation to this project to help us make orchards a reality for these Hawaiian schools, as well as the many, many other schools and communities across Hawai'i who are waiting to participate in our programs.

Thank you for believing in the power of fruit trees to support Hawaiian communities!

Let's keep fundraising!

Ola friends,

Thank you for your continued support of the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation and our project in Brazil! 

We were unable to reach our fundraising goal for 2019, but we are committed to this project and have rescheduled our trip to Mococa until March 2020. Our partners in Brazil. Grupo Ecológico Ohlo d'Agua, are continuing their work to grow beautiful fruit tree saplings to support the project, and are also working with the community to organize the plantings that will now happen in 2020.

We will continue to keep you updated on this and our other projects throughout the year. We are kicking off the year in Florida next week by planting and distributing 100 fruit trees around Orlando to create community orchards and backyard sources of fresh fruit in low-income neighborhoods. 

A donation to Reforesting Brazil with Fruit Trees today will make a big difference in helping us reach our fundraising goal to bring thousands of fruit trees to this very vulnerable part of Brazil!

Muito obrigada (thank you very much),

The FTPF Team

2018 Annual Report

Thank you to everyone who donated to Help Native Hawaiians Regain Food Freedom this year! With your support, we planted over 200 fruit trees with schools, Native Hawaiian cultural groups, nonprofits and families all across the Big Island. This was the first of many plantings around Hawai'i to come that will bring locally grown organic fruit that is FREE and easily accessible to islanders that may not otherwise regularly eat healthy produce or foods.

Attached in our 2018 Annual Report, which highlights our program outputs for the year, as well as the fact that for the eighth year in a row 90 cents of every dollar was spent on our life-sustaining tree-planting programs. Please take a look, and consider contributing towards Help Native Hawaiians Regain Food Freedom before the year ends!

Have a very fruitful holiday season and a happy New Year!
