We Need Your Votes! Help the Marana Farm Win an Orchard
The Community Food Bank’s own Marana Farm is in the running for an entire orchard of fruit trees! All we need to make this happen? Your vote through www.CommunitiesTakeRoot.com. Once you register you can vote up to once daily to give the Marana Farm and our community the best chance at having this resource planted here.
Voting for “Communities Take Root” will run on or about April 15 – August 31, 2011. Visit www.CommunitiesTakeRoot.com to read the inspiring nominations and cast your vote. The communities with the most votes will receive a fruit tree orchard, which will be planted in partnership with the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to planting fruit trees to support healthy nutrition worldwide.
“Dreyer’s is passionate about helping neighborhoods become greener, healthier and of course, sweeter. Last year, tens of thousands of people voted at www.CommunitiesTakeRoot.com to help select which 25 neighborhoods would receive a public orchard. After the votes were tallied, “It was amazing to witness people from all walks of life coming together in each community to help plant the fruit trees,” says Jia Li, Fruit Bars Associate Brand Manager.
