The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation is renewing its partnerships for restoration work in the Keau’ohana and Halepua’a Forest Reserves through embarking on a new round of grant seeking and writing. Partner organizations Hawaii Environmental Restoration and Malama O Puna are collaborators in the first proposal, “Working Together to Protect Hawaii’s Vital Forests,” written to Mountain Rose Herbs’ #grants4plants program. If funded the program would place 400 rare and endangered endemic trees into these two crucial lowland tropical forests over the course of one year. To promote this partnership, Seed of Life Productions and a local narrator donated a combined six hours of in-kind video work to the effort. You can see the 3 minute video here or below.
