Welcome to Christine’s Mile-a-thon page!

Here I am on tour again! This the 3rd annual Fruit Tree Tour I have had the pleasure of joining.

We are traveling the length of California planting fruit trees at schools and in communities.

Previously on Fruit Tree Tour I have been a chef. This year on Fruit Tree Tour I am Volunteer Support. The daylong school program includes tree planting with small groups of children, in which I am one of the facilitators, encouraging the kids to get their hands in the soil and thinking about where our food comes from.

It is amazing that this Nonprofit Organization is run solely by volunteers!

All the crew members of Common Vision are dedicated, hard working, above and beyond in their efforts to share a brighter vision of the future with the children.

We travel in a fleet of seven vehicles and each has been converted to run on vegetable oil.

This is the world's largest caravan, powered by recycled vegetable oil!

This crew strives to set an example, sending ripples through all of the people we encounter on the road. We aim to bring health and awareness of our Earth Mother.I truly hope you enjoy cruising this site to learn all about this project and the other elements of the school program.

The tour depends on private donations for about 70% of the total cost of tour. I am asking for your help to make this tour happen, and absolutely every bit counts!

Please help us plant up to 30 schools and communities with over 1000 fruit trees!
Use the PayPal button bellow to support the tour for only $1 a mile!
And stay tuned to our website and see the progress of our plantings.
