Gift Description:
$15 provides a fruit tree for a family. When families plant fruit trees, they’re growing nutrition, income and opportunity. Fruit trees are inexpensive and easy to grow. Vitamin-rich fruit provides an important addition to the family diet, and households can earn income and improve community health by selling excess produce. Trees also create shade, prevent erosion and improve soil health.
