 The Fruit Tree 101 program creates outdoor edible orchard classrooms at public schools of all levels across the country, providing generations of students with environmental education opportunities and a source of organic fruit for improved school lunch nutrition. The "Fruit Tree 101" event is typically completed in two parts. The first is held on a weekend to accommodate volunteer schedules, and involves planting the orchard under the direction of our certified arborist. The school helps coordinate local volunteers for this day. The second part, held when school is in session, invites students to join FTPF's instructors for a fun, hour-long lesson about the importance of trees for the environment and fruit in the diet-culminating in a group tree planting exercise. The Maximum award varies based on program needs. Schools in Atlanta, Detroit, Houston, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York City, San Antonio, San Francisco/Oakland, and Washington, D.C are eligible to apply. The deadline is rolling.
