Professional Partner Program
The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation (FTPF) has launched a Professional Partner Program, which your business can learn more about and join by clicking on the "subscribe" buttons found on this page.
FTPF works with local partner organizations and businesses around the world to create community-owned orchards, empowering residents with pride of place through community greening and access to free, fresh, healthful produce. FTPF donates orchards where the harvest will best serve communities for generations, at places such as public schools, city parks, community gardens, low-income neighborhoods, food banks, Native American reservations, and international hunger relief sites. Our programs help communities help themselves through the provision of orchards as long-term assets, along with training in their care.
Founded in 2002, FTPF has rapidly gained recognition as an effective organization that weds sustainable farming, environmental restoration, and community capacity building through the simple act of planting fruit trees. Recent projects include addressing environmental devastation in the Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans through planting nine community orchards and planting thousands of fruit trees in community orchards throughout the western Indian state of Maharashtra, helping one of the poorest regions in the world restore their deforested environment and develop a sustainable long term source of fresh food.
We are excited to launch a new membership program for businesses, including nurseries and landscape professionals, through which your business can participate in the exciting food movement that is sweeping the nation. Now, you can help put trees in the ground and food on the table in low-income communities across the globe.
By becoming an FTPF Professional Partner, you will send a message to customers affirming your commitment to social responsibility and innovative approaches to environmental and community restoration. We acknowledge all Professional Partner memberships by providing special window decals to display at your business (request multiples for trucks & satellite offices!) and acknowledgement on FTPF’s Facebook page for your generous support.
Finally, a charitable giving program that is ideal for all types of businesses. And the program is affordable for small businesses as well at $240 per year, or just $20 per month. You can help make a real difference in the lives of low-income children, seniors, and families.
Join Gordon and Margaret Tooley from Tooley’s Trees in supporting our important work: “It’s great that FTPF finds small nurseries like ours to work with that can supply trees that do well in difficult sites and environments. We are proud to be FTPF Professional Partners. Thanks for planting trees!” –Gordon Tooley, Tooley’s Trees, Truchas, New Mexico
