Together we can build it! Serve with Lawrence Fruit Tree Project!

If you are interested in helping to build a more resilient food system, build community, learn new skills and share your own talents then LFTP wants your involvement.

There are a few ways you can get involved with LFTP:

Volunteer at Workdays: We have regular workdays to build and maintain Lawrence Community Orchard. Workdays are usually the third Saturday of the month. March through November. But please sign up on our email list to get updated information about workday times. People of all skill levels are welcome.

Join our leadership team: We have an all volunteer leadership team that keeps the project moving. We are currently looking for new dedicated members that can attend 7 out of 9 seasonal workdays and attend monthly meetings with an increase of meetings in the winter months. You will occasionally need to take on small independent projects. Fruit tree and gardening experience is not necessary but useful. Areas of knowledge with social media, fundraising, and website skills would be useful. Photographers, carpentry, are among other useful skill sets. Contact us if you are interested.

Donate funds to our organization: We rely on financial donations to help us purchase trees, offer workshops, and cover other essential operational expenses.   Donations are tax deductible. Please contact us if you would like to donate.

Donate materials to our organization: Our Donations page has a list of materials we can use. If any of these items are gathering dust in your garage and you’d like to pass them along, we’d be glad to put them to use!   Please do not buy new tools or materials, rather give financially. Giving new use to used equipment is our preference.  Also, we are able to buy specific to our needs. Your support is greatly appreciated!
