Tree People Tribute

Fruit Tree Tour was born when Los Angeles based nonprofit TreePeople gifted 100 fruit trees to Common Vision as part of their Fruit Trees to Combat Hunger program. Tree People have now been a vital part of 4 years of Fruit Tree Tour. TreePeople donates up to 80 percent of the fruit trees planted in Los Angeles during Fruit Tree Tour each year. This year, Common Vision will contribute 200 tree plantings towards Tree Peoples 300,000 tree pledge for the Million Tree LA initiative.

Common Vision partners with TreePeople to plant fruit trees and increase food security in low-income neighborhoods. TreePeople has offered enormous support to Common Vision not only through the donation of fruit trees, but also in helping to develop our systems to support teachers and students in caring for their trees.

TreePeople has been planting trees in Los Angeles for over 25 years. Their mission is clear--to inspire the people of Los Angeles to take personal responsibility for the urban forest. Through education, training, and support Tree People catalyzes community tree planting and care to improve LA neighborhoods in the communities live, learn, work and play.

This is truly working together to make a difference. Thank you Tree People for your inspiration and support. Visit them online at TreePeople.org.
