Here’s an exciting opportunity for bringing donated fruit tree orchards into the community. Applications must be received by February 28!

The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation (FTPF) is an award-winning international nonprofit charity dedicated to planting fruit trees to alleviate world hunger, combat global warming, strengthen communities, and improve the surrounding air, soil, and water.

FTPF is launching a groundbreaking new community fruit tree planting program and is currently accepting applications for 2010 orchard donations. This is an especially exciting opportunity for school gardens, community gardens, food banks, and other neighborhood empowerment organizations, as an orchard will produce delightful, high quality produce for many years with relatively little work.

The first 100 qualified applications received by February 28 will be considered for a free FTPF orchard, so act fast! Download the application form here (Fruit Tree Program Application), which contains a more detailed description of the program.

Please feel free to contact the foundation with any questions or visit their website ( And feel free to forward this possibility along to others that may be interested.
