Join FTPF March 301st to April 8th, 2018 to plant thousands of fruit trees in Uganda! Fruit trees provide sustainable nutrition, income to families in poverty, & help clean the air, water, & soil.
We will distribute trees directly to low-income areas & hold educational workshops on how to care for the orchards & most benefit from their harvest. Trees will be placed in schools, health clinics & orphanages to promote the health & healing of Uganda. This is a country facing the staggering problems of a rapidly changing world: erratic & less frequent monsoons, longer droughts, food instability, soil erosion, carbon emissions, water contamination, agricultural struggle & a growing population with little access to fresh food.
Volunteers with a deep sense of respect for the environment & local cultures will help FTPF to plant & distribute fruit trees, educate children & farmers on organic horticultural practices, & interact with the local communities in a profound and truly unique way.
