Owen and Whitney on Fruit Tree Tour

Please join us on this 3,000 mile journey to inspire over 10,000 children and plant 1,000 trees by sponsoring a portion of it at $1 a mile. EVERY DONATION HELPS.

Hello friends and family,

As many of you know, we are on the road with, Common Vision's 7th annual all-volunteer Fruit Tree Tour. For the next 5 weeks we will be traveling through California on the world's largest recycled-veggie oil caravan, with a group of 20 educators! While on tour we will be visiting a school a day, beginning with a green theater performance, and ending with an orchard planting on the campus. After the performance we spread out on the campus and work with the kids to plant an orchard on the school yard. By the end of the tour we will plant 1,000 fruit trees.

Common Vision is an incredible non-profit organization and being on tour has been an inspiring learning experience for both of us. We uploaded a video we made of tour-life, which is so multi-fauceted that it is hard to explain in words. The crew we are with is an amazing group of educators, organizers, farmers, permaculturalists, musicians, actors, veggie mechanics, videographers, photographers, artists, all putting their energy towards a common vision for the future. The dedication and work that is being put into this project is humbling, and we are excited about bringing such a positive message to kids.

You can check out the website to learn more about this organization's important work. If your inspired... get involved! There are a bunch of ways to help this solution based organization! Small contributions from tour friends like yourselves help purchase fruit trees and keep us on the road.

Hope this finds you all well and inspired!
