    School Orchard Project

    1000 orchards by 2025

Taking root and bearing fruit!


The California School Orchard Project provides 80,000 low-income children at 234 schools with the nutritional and educational benefits of a productive and engaging orchard of fruit trees, grown right on the school campus.

Let us put your school on the map!

Our Approach

Common Vision takes a unique approach to school gardens, using fruit trees and other perennials to create extremely high-yielding, low-maintenance, and low-cost school gardens. This allows students to eat tons of fresh fruit, while freeing teachers and garden coordinators to focus on education instead of garden maintenance.


Common Vision’s California School Orchard Project provides 100,000 low-income students with fresh fruit every year. Schools looking to nourish and educate their students contact us every week requesting an orchard. Unfortunately the wait list for our program can be as long as 3 years; without your support, we cannot help them. Sponsor a school now!

Low input. Big output!
