Trees for Tribes


Thank you for your support of the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation's "Trees for Tribes" project. Our team is hard at work with project planning for implementation scheduled for spring of this year. We are pleased to partner with members of the Pine Ridge Tribe in South Dakota to create a series of school and community orchards that will improve the environment, nutrition, and provide educational opportunities. Pine Ridge is located in the poorest of counties in the country, where families are in dire need of sustainable sources of fresh produce. We look forward to our next update, when we'll announce the school locations and planting schedule with the community!

Again, our thanks to you and the entire GlobalGiving community for your generous support!
