Here we go again! The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation is returning for yet another year to continue one of our favorite programs in El Salvador--and we want your help!

We are inviting fellow tree-enthusiasts to join along with our staff and arborists to help plant and distribute thousands of fruit trees to families, students, and farmers throughout rural El Salvador. The project consists of two plantings per day over one week from July 1-7, 2018, with some downtime and scheduled trips to explore and experience the food, people, and culture of this small but beautiful country. For more information, email us at info@fptf.org or visit our website. All fees go directly towards funding this project and helping FTPF fight for a cleaner, safer, and healthier environment for all Salvadoran people.

If you can't join us, be sure to follow along on Facebook and Instagram to see daily updates from the field as we get down and dirty with our partners SHARE El Salvador and CONFRAS to bring the bounty of fruitful trees to those who need them most. And please also consider donating $20 TODAY towards our ongoing efforts in El Salvador!

Ola friends,

We are writing from Brazil, where we kicked off the 2018 planting season with 2,500 fruit trees for families and students in Mococa, Sao Paolo!

Also in store this season are projects in Uganda, Arizona, El Salvador, Guatemala, New York City, Pittsburgh, Minnesota tribes, Miami, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Peru, and we will wrap up the year with our first school orchard donations on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Thank you for all your support, and we will keep sending you updates from the field as we continue putting happy, healthy new fruit trees in the ground.

Muito obrigada,

To help celebrate the holidays, we are asking our friends and past donors to contribute towards our El Salvador project. We have an ever-growing list of cooperatives, farmers, families, and schools from an ever-increasing part of the country requesting fruit tree donations, and we need your help to meet this demand. We are entering the halfway mark to our 100,000 trees in 10-year goal, and it is critical that 2018 is a success!

 

For just $10/tree, you can give the holiday gift keeps on giving to Salvadoran families!

Thank you from all of us at the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation, and we wish you all a beautiful, bountiful holiday.

We need your help to keep a promise. We are halfway through our project to plant 100,000 fruit trees over 10 years in El Salvador, and this year's trip was both a testament to how much we have accomplished and how far we have to go to ensure that the people of El Salvador have access to healthy food, a living income, and a clean, safe environment.

During a meeting with our in-country partners, SHARE El Salvador and CONFRAS, our friend and CONFRAS president Don Lara Ivel asked us point blank:

With all the unrest, food insecurity, and environmental damage that has befallen our small country, do we have your word to fufill your mission to plant 100,000 fruit trees within our borders?

Our answer was YES.

But we need your help! Over five years, we have grown, planted, and distributed thousands of trees thorughout El Salvador, and now we must continue our efforts to reach our 100,000 tree goal. Will you donate $25 today to help us keep our promise to Don Ivel and the Salavdoran people?

Muchisma gracias from the entire FTPF team!

Here we go again!

In just a few short weeks, the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation is on our way to year five of our ten-year project to plant 100,000 fruit trees in El Salvador.

This year, we will get to revisit many of our previously planted orchards to check on the growth, offer workshops, and answer questions about these maturing trees. We will also continue to plant new orchards and distribute more trees directly to low-income families throughout rural San Salvador. 

Right now is the perfect time to donate and show us how much you believe in the power of fruit trees to bring environmental, economic, and nutritional change to this small, beautiful country!

To a fruitful future for all Salvadoran people,

The FTPF Team
