Fruit Tree Planting at Schools - Volunteers, Donors Needed December 03, 2007 9:56 AM


FTPF's “Fruit Tree 101” program involves donating and planting high quality fruit tree orchards at public schools of all levels, across the country, to provide generations of students and teachers with healthy nutrition options and environmental education opportunities. One school district official from a recent recipent school wrote that they expect their outdoor orchard classrooms “…to last for decades, giving our students the opportunity to receive environmental education that would not otherwise be available to them.”

Please join us for our next "Fruit Tree 101" orchard planting in San Diego! R.S.V.P.'s are requested so we can plan accordingly.

When: Saturday, December 8, 2007 (9:00 a.m.)
Where: Albert Einstein Academies, 3035 Ash St., San Diego, CA, 92102
Contact: Cem Akin, FTPF Director (831.419.6369 or
Details: This day will be focused on planting the orchard under the direction of a certified arborist. Activities will include digging, planting, mulching, and having lots of fun! Volunteers are asked to bring their own spade shovels, if possible. No experience is necessary, and a rewarding experience is guaranteed, rain or shine!

Nominate a school: Schools across the country have learned about FTPF’s “Fruit Tree 101” program and have requested orchard donations to improve the health of their students. Our donations are made without any cost to recipients, as we provide all the trees, soil amendments, planting labor, and educational lessons. Recipients must be public schools that own the proposed planting site and are committed to aftercare, as needed, and to using the orchard solely for the benefit of the school and its students. If you know of a good candidate for “Fruit Tree 101,” please contact us at
