Keep America Beautiful and The UPS Foundation Awards Tree Planting Grant To Keep Philadelphia Beautiful

(October 18, 2018) – Keep Philadelphia Beautiful received a $5,000 grant from The UPS Foundation as part of the 2018 Keep America Beautiful/UPS Community Tree and Recovery Tree Planting Grant Program. Keep Philadelphia Beautiful, in partnership with the Philadelphia Orchard Project (POP) will give away fruit trees at no cost to community members throughout a variety of orchard events in fall 2018 and spring 2019. The tree giveaways will take place in different neighborhoods across Philadelphia to increase the number of city residents with the ability to plant a fruit tree in their yard or community.  Fruit trees provide both beauty and bounty, and allow urban residents to produce healthy food right in their own neighborhoods. In addition to increasing food access, city fruit trees provide a wide array of environmental benefits.
