New video of our native tree planting in Hawai'i

Aloha friends, we are excited to share with you this new video created in collaboration with our friends and partners in Hawai'i to highlight our work to reforest and protect two lowlands forests on Hawai'i Island. 

FTPF's Native Tree Planting Partnership: Working Together to Protect Hawaii’s Vital Forests

Together with our partners at Hawaii Environmental Restoration and Malama O Puna, we are working to plant another 100 native trees in the Keau`ohana Forest Reserve and Halepua’a Forest Reserve this year. Please consider supporting our work by donating or sharing this fundraiser with your friends--together we can save these native trees and forests for future generations!

Mahalo nui loa,

Guatemala 2020 postponed

Dear friends,

We regret to share that due to the COVID19 pandemic, we have had to postpone our 2020 tree planting and distribution with families in Rio Dulce, Guatemala. That being said, we are committed to this project and, with the help of our local partners at Casa Guatemala, will continue to evaluate the needs of the community moving forward. We are keeping everyone's safety as our top priority to ensure that our work in Rio Dulce supports overall family health and wellbeing.

As we know more about when we can resume our project, we will keep you updated. Thank you so very much for your support during these difficult times.

To a fruitful future,

The FTPF Team

Safely moving forward with Hawai'i tree plantings

Dear friends,

Although our team has had some setbacks and postponements due to the global crisis, we are excited to move forward with our next Hawai'i island tree planting projects.

Next month, FTPF will plant a 50-tree orchard at a local farm animal sanctuary and approximately 100 native trees in a local forest reserve. Our aim is to continue providing fruit and native trees to the island to ensure a more sustainable, self-sufficient, and bountiful future for the Hawaiian people, animals, and island communities. We have been implementing safety measures at all our events and following local guidelines and recommendations to ensure the safety of our volunteers, staff, and neighbors.

We will send updates from these plantings in our next project report, and, in the meantime, will be working hard to continue fundraising to bring as many fruit trees to our islands as possible!
