Fruit Tree 101 in Brazil
I get so many pitches and emails each day but I love getting information where good things are happening for people and the environment. I recently got this announcement on a non-profit organization that’s making a real difference planting Fruit trees to save the land and the people.

Stretch Island Fruit Co. and The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation (FTPF), an international nonprofit organization dedicated to planting edible fruit trees and plants to benefit communities and heal the earth, will continue to expand “Fruit Tree 101’s” reach in 2009 by bringing fruit tree orchards to approximately 17 new schools in nine cities nationwide as part of the company’s ongoing mission to educate children about the importance of eating fruit and caring for the environment.
