Fruit Tree Planting

June 10 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation (FTPF) has chosen La Plaza Cultural as one of several new orchards to be planted within New York City this June. FTPF is an international nonprofit charity whose mission is to bring fruitful trees and plants to as many people in as many places around the world in order to fight for environmental, food, and social justice all at once. La Plaza Cultural will receive  approximately 15 new trees as well as horticultural training from FTPF’s arborists as part of a larger effort to bring the beauty and bounty of fruit trees to NYC’s urban environment. This orchard will  provide fresh, delicious food that also beautifies, amplifies, cleans, and purifies the local community!
La Plaza wants to offer a huge Thanks to Lizzy and Rico from the FTPF who have helped organize this.
We are looking for volunteers to help plant our orchard (15 trees) as well as any requests on what kind of fruit/ nut trees you may like planted. (reach out to me at scrammer@gmail.com with ideas).
 
We will start planting at 11am on Saturday June 10th, directed by Rico, FTPF’s arborist.
Rico will also provide lessons on how to maintain the orchard after the installation, for all those who will want to stay on.
