Communities Take Root: Vote For an Orchard in Your Park

Communities Take Root: Vote For an Orchard in Your Park

Wouldn't it be amazing to have a fruit tree in your yard — or better yet, an orchard for a park? Now's your chance! Edy's Fruit Bars has teamed up with The Fruit Tree Planting to Foundation to help reward deserving communities by supplying them with orchards for their own fresh fruit supply. Find out how to get one planted in your community, after the jump.

Edy's and The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation are giving communities across the nation a chance to get dozens or fruit trees planted in their parks. Each contending location has been selected based on their need and potential to benefit the surrounding community, including public schools, city parks and low-income neighborhoods.

To vote for your community to win, visit CommunitiesTakeRoot.com, select your favored location, and vote! Voting ends on August 31 and Communities Take Root will announce 5 winners the first day of each month, May 1 through Sept 1.

This is a wonderful idea; a great way to improve parks, educate citizens and overall benefit communities in a tasty way! Find out more here.
