We help students and communities experience
what it means to be environmental stewards
and to taste sustainability.
ReTreeUS is an exciting project of United Charitable (501c3) dedicated to promoting an environmentally sustainable, socially just food system through education, practical resources and mentorship. We plant orchards in schools and provide educational programs that empower people to be healthy environmental stewards. Our programs are currently focused in the state of Maine.
Our orchards are planted at no expense for public schools that apply to our program. We have a rolling admission process, so apply now if you are an interested Maine school. These educational school orchards give students a direct experience with sustainability! Click here to donate and help us plant our 2017
We also offer partnership orchards for non-profit organizations that are intererested in permaculture education. Contact US for details.
