Fruit trees have so many benefits! Yes, they
- look lovely when they bloom.
- provide nutritious fruit to harvest each year, and
- provide much needed shade in the desert.
2020 Fruit Trees Report
Each year since 2017, Border Partners has purchased fruit tree saplings to plant around the community. Late in August, Juana Flores, our garden coordinator and Melissa Reyes, General Manager, drove to Casas Grandes, Chihuahua to pick up 135 trees for this year’s planting.
Border Partners publicized that these young trees were available to the community. Now, local families have planted all the newly-purchased pear, peach, plum and pomegranate trees in their yards.
