Would you like to adopt a tree in the Gulfport Food Forest?

Would you like to make a gift of a tree to be planted somewhere in the food forest or in designated areas of Gulfport or along Pinellas Trail?  

Do you have a fruit tree you can no longer manage? Or it was there when you bought your house & you don't know what to do? Or would you like to be trained to take care of a fruit tree, and help distribute the harvest? We're also interested in new locations to plant trees. So sign up today, and invite a friend to join you!
