The Issue: Fruit Trees Benefit Communities

Fruit trees require less labor and fewer resources than most annual crops, making them an easy way for communities to grow food locally. Along with producing food, the trees' perennial nature makes them ideal for many other functions, including landscaping, shade, and living fences.

The Campaign: Planting and Maintaining Fruit Trees

If this Grassroots campaign raises $380, then Lawrence Fruit Tree Project can purchase and plant 20 fruit trees (a $300 total cost), install one watering-hose system (a $30 cost), and purchase tools to build a garden shed (a $50 cost), at a site that is intended to evolve into an ecological community orchard with a park-like atmosphere. Each additional $30 raised will purchase another two fruit trees.

The tree-planting site, leased by the Lawrence Fruit Tree Project as part of the city of Lawrence's Common Ground Program, borders the Burroughs Creek Rail Trail in the East Lawrence neighborhood.

To celebrate the launch of Groupon Grassroots, Groupon will provide a $1,000 kickoff grant to this campaign.

Lawrence Fruit Tree Project

The Lawrence Fruit Tree Project works to address the growing need for access to nutritious food by partnering with the public to grow, maintain, and utilize perennial food plants. Through community orchard projects, the organization helps local residents plant and care for fruit trees, develops proposals for appropriate public spaces to plant trees, and hosts educational workshops about fruit- and nut-tree cultivation.
