On the Road with Common Vision


Earlier this spring, Common Vision's Fruit Tree Tour traveled the length of California – visiting communities from San Diego to Richmond. At each stop, the tour's crew of volunteer educators worked alongside elementary, junior and high school students, teachers, and family members to transform schoolyards and vacant lots into orchards.

Common Vision has been planting and supporting school orchards across the state for a decade. After planting more than 5,200 trees, the Tour crew knows exactly which varieties do best in a school setting. Every tree is selected to be climate appropriate, disease resistant, and easy to grow, providing delicious fruit that can be picked during the school year.
