Planting trees of hope

Dear friends of FTPF,

Thank you for continuing to support FTPF and our work to bring food equality and food sovereignty to Native American reservations around the country. We believe fruit trees are an essential part of creating healthier, stronger indigenous communities, and with every tree planted believe we are planting hope for future generations...

"How long are we going to let others determine the future for our children? Are we not warriors? When our ancestors went into battle they did not know what the consequences were going to be. All they knew was that if they did nothing, things would not go well for their children Do not operate out of a place of fear, operate from a place of hope. With hope everything is possible. The time is now."

-Crazy Horse

In this spirit, we will be planting hundreds of trees with the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan and the White Earth Band of Ojibwe in Minnesota in May 2019 at community centers, health centers, schools, and native-run nonprofits on tribal lands. Please consider making a donation to Trees for Tribes to help us make orchards a reality for these tribes, as well as the many, many others around the country who are waiting to participate in our programs.

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

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
