Join our team of tree planting educators!


Twice a year, 16 crew members travel to public schools to plant fruit trees and create art with thousands of kids. In addition to planting 10-25 new orchards, crew members provide pruning, irrigation support, art programming, education, and other care for 50-100 maturing school orchards.

Working to grow delicious living classrooms by day and camping together by night, crew members experience intensive fruit tree education, a meaningful way to contribute to the school garden movement, and often the cultivation of lifelong friendships.

Common Vision is actively seeking people of color to staff our next Spring tour.
