What an amazing two weeks!

The first week of Fruit Tree Tour in Santa Cruz, Watsonville, and Fresno was packed with planting and inspiration. Plantings included 3 elementary schools and 4 head start programs.

The second week in Los Angeles has so far been as powerful and impactful as any in Fruit Tree Tour history. On Monday, we work with the Green Ambassadors and Environmental Charter High School where Common Vision served as mentors for 40 high school leaders. After 2 hours of tree planting training, the high schools and the Fruit Tree Tour crew walked to a local elementary school. The high school students then led the tree planting with a group of 100 4th graders. Fruit Tree TV episode on this planting is coming soon.

The last three days have included 3 elementary schools, 1,100 students, and 55 fruit trees planted in Compton and Pacific Palisades.

Here is a slide show with highlights from the from the tour so far.
