Aloha friends,

The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation is excited to announce our 2018 Island of Hawai'i orchard donations happening throughout the month of September!

We have an amazing lineup of recipeients including several schools, a farmers market, the Univerity of Hawaii at Hilo, a food sovreignty group, and a Native Hawaiian cultural center. FTPF staff have been busy visiting our partners here on the island, travelling from Kona to the Kohala coast and down into lower Puna to plan the orchards and select trees that will create bounitiful food forests. We will be planting a beautiful variety of trees specifically adapted for Hawai'i Island's unique climates, including ulu (breadfruit), avocado, mango, lychee, mountain apple, cacao, rambutan, carambola (starfruit), many types of citrus, jaboticaba, cinnamon, clove, and many, many more!

If you are on the islands and would like to join us at one of the planting events, please email our Programs Manager at lizzy@ftpf.org for dates/times. We'd love to have our generous supporters help plant the fruit trees they helped bring to fruition!

Mahalo nui loa (thank you very much)

Hola amigos de FTPF!

We are so grateful for your support of our program to bring 100,000 fruit trees to the people of El Salvador. Over the past six years, we have been able to establish a nursery to grow thousands of fruit trees and plant and distribute those trees to schools, farmers, and families all across the country.

While at the moment our team is busy planting trees in other parts of the world, we are actively planning for year seven in El Salvador in 2019. We will continue our work to alliviate hunger, poor nutrition, deforestation, and poverty through the planting of fruit trees in this small, amazing, yet struggling nation.

Muchisimas gracias for your belief that fruit trees can be the answer to so many of El Salvador's pressing issues, and putting your faith in the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation to bring this program to those Salvadorans who need it the most.
