Fruit Tree Planting Foundation...

From their website:
The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation is a nonprofit charity dedicated to planting edible, fruitful trees and plants to benefit the environment and all its inhabitants. Our primary mission is to plant and help others plant a collective total of 18 billion fruit trees across the world (approximately 3 for every person alive) and encourage their growth under organic standards."

This is a wonderful program! My dream is to see an outfit in Contra Costa County win a fruit tree planting. Upon reading their website, you will find that Tennyson High School in Hayward, California and another school in Boulder Creek, California have received tree plantings from this organization. Contra Costa County - Let's get growing!

  1. Do fig trees grow well in the Concord area?
    If so, which varieties are best here?
