Think Orange. The Happier, Heart-Healthy color.It takes a simple act of kindness to bring fresh fruit to a food pantry. One person. One tree. It all begins somewhere. Have YOU picked a tree today?
1. Walking is healthy excercise for YOUR heart. Go for a walk around the neigborhood today. You'll find many fruit trees bursting with ripe oranges, lemons, and other citrus.

2. Making friends is healthy for YOUR heart. I've met over 500 fruit tree owners in the Bay Area. Believe me, they are kind and generous souls who love to share. Make new friends today.

3. Picking fruit is healthy excercise for YOUR heart.

4. Eating fresh oranges is healthy nutrition for YOUR heart.

5. Joy of giving and sharing is healthy emotion for YOUR heart.

  1. I love oranges. In addition to them being great for your heart, they also have the #1 reputation for the best cold and flu fighter. Jumping rope is also great for the heart rate as well.

  2. A thought I had about the new CNWS development and the required homeless housing. I wonder if anyone has thought about landscaping at this phase and planting orange trees, as well as other fruit trees, around the area. Maybe within a vegetable garden area that some of the people in the housing could be put in charge of.
