Cultivate your children's understanding of the earth by planting trees! One organization brings ecology, music and art to inner-city communities. If your kids are getting bored in their science classes, there's an exciting hands-on alternative that students of all ages can enjoy. Common Vision is running its fourth annual Fruit Tree Tour, a 20-city, 70-day tour planting over 1000 fruit trees at urban schools.

Traveling in veggie oil-powered caravan, 25-earth educators from Common Vision will teach students about sustainable ecology through a daylong program that includes West African agricultural drumming and earth-conscious hip-hop. The goal of this annual tour is to develop working relationships with teachers and administrators to integrate sustainability into schools' curricula and landscapes.
