The Heritage Fruit Tree Project

Please help our mission to restore Colorado's historical fruit tree resource and grow our local food economies. 
 
The goals of this project include:
•       map and collect data on all fruit trees in the Roaring Fork Valley
•       identify trees with tasty fruit and favorable characteristics
•       graft from, grow and plant more fruit trees throughout the Roaring Fork Valley and Western Slope region of Colorado
•       divert food production back into our local and regional food systems
 
We are underway with a crowdsource fundraising campaign through Kickstarter to be able to:

•        Conduct data collection and geographic information analysis of heritage fruit trees
•        Support the expansion of a heritage fruit tree nursery at the Central Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute
•        Plant conservancy orchards on private and public land
•        Build irrigation infrastructure
 
Food production generated from this project will be sold into our local food system or gleaned for distribution to food banks depending on location and partnership with land owners. Please visit our website at heritagefruitguild.com for more information. 
 
Even a $5 donation is huge and greatly appreciated as Kickstarter will boost the pages visibility the more backers we have. A link to our fundraising page is here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/817199960/the-heritage-fruit-tree-project We have lots of great donor rewards!
 
Will you please pass this email along to friends and family? With everyone's help we can grow this amazing historical resource we have and start producing more food locally.
 
With huge, heartfelt thanks,
