Sharing is caring!

510 Fruit and nut trees donated by Dave Wilson Nursery and Fowler Nursery were planted in the burn scar this Spring Equinox weekend, March 20 and 21, 2021. Thank you so much to our donors! Dave Wilson’s team came and planted at the Paradise Ridge Elementary School with us on Saturday after delivering 350 bare root fruit and nut trees.

Gratitude as well to K Organics, Catalyst Bio Amendments, Crystalline Earth Movement and Butte Strong Fund for their donations. 

Thank you as always to North Valley Community Foundation for funding our work.

The goal of this event is to add food security, reduce fire risk, and heal the land while building community connections. We are so grateful for our newest member to CFRP Wayne Hill who made the connections with the nurseries and brought his idea of food forests to heal the burn scar to us to make manifest. We have also been graced to be joined by Kelly Meyers a Paradise native who is now in Santa Cruz but on our board of directors. Amelia Erikson joined Carl to lead the Concow hub for distribution of 200 trees there. Over 100 volunteers including 3 from the Paradise Fire Department showed up to help plant the trees.

Thank you to everyone who participated and congratulations to all the recipients and tenders of the fruit and nut trees. We look forwards to sharing abundance of food with you all in the coming years.
