Update on our El Salvador tree planting project

Dear friends,

Usually this time of year, our staff and volunteers would be in the field on our project in El Salvador, planting and distributing thousands of trees with schools and farmers cooperatives. However, as a result of the current situation in the country due to the COVID19 pandemic, we have had to postpone our activities. That being said, the trees are safe and sound in their nurseries, and as soon as it is safe for our local team and the communities we work with, we will resume our work to bring the environmental, nutritional, and economic benefits of fruit trees to rural and vulnerable Salvadoran families.

In the meantime, our thoughts are with the people of El Salvador. FTPF has been working in the country since 2014 and we are dedicated to supporting their rights to healthy food, stable income, and sustainable agriculture.

To a fruitful future,

The FTPF team

Continuing to fundraise for Fruit Tree 101...

Dear friends,

During these challenging times, the FTPF team is so grateful for the generosity of our supporters for believing in the power of fruit trees to sustain and nourish children across the country and around the world. We are happy to have raised $125 so far towards our project to create an official Fruit Tree 101 curriculum, however, we still have some work to do to reach our goal of $4,000.

We know these are challenging times and if you are unable to contribute, we completely understand. Perhaps consider showing your support for FTPF by sharing this fundraiser with friends, family, or on social media and with your help, we will create outdoor, living, edible classrooms for generations of students to learn, play, and eat from!

To a fruitful future,

The FTPF Team

An update on our tree planting program in Brazil

Dear friends,

We wanted to give you a quick update on FTPF's project in Brazil, especially in light of the current circumstances in Brazil and the rest of Latin America, which are currently on the frontlines of the coronavirus.

Devastatingly, during these challenging times, many environmental protections are being quickly and quietly rolled back in Brazil. We cannot allow deforestation and environmental degradation to take advantage of this moment, we must continue fighting. For our part, FTPF is continuing to work with our partners in Mococa to plan for our next tree planting, distribution, and education program there. This includes fundraising, which is an important part of getting these trees in the ground.

If you are able to make a contribution to support our work planting trees for students, families, and wildlife in southeastern Brazil, we would be very grateful; if not, you can show your support of FTPF during these times by sharing this fundraiser with your friends and family or on social media.

To a fruitful future,

The FTPF team
