Join FTPF every July in El Salvador, a country where deforestation & soil erosion has had serious environmental, social, & economic impacts. The rural population here is most greatly affected, with nearly one million Salvadorans living in poverty & over 50% of El Salvador’s land unsuitable for food cultivation.
Volunteers will help FTPF to bring the life-sustaining abundance that comes from fruit trees to the people of El Salvador. Orchards will be placed in low-income neighborhoods, schools, parks, orphanages, & town centers. Volunteers have the opportunity to work side by side with FTPF staff as we educate community leaders on organic horticultural practices & how to reap the most benefit from the harvest. You will have your hands in the dirt with school children as they learn about the importance of fruit trees for themselves, their communities, & for the earth. We seek volunteers with a deep respect for the environment & for the local cultures in which we plant.
