BSU volunteers (students, faculty, staff) will plant a campus fruit tree orchard of about 25 (primarily) apple and pear trees on the tract of land between Lot L and Loop Road (near the Student Center). Trees were donated by the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation and an expert arborist will be on site along with possible members from the media.
In collaboration with Vitafusion, the FTPF teamed with BSU as a part of a bold goal to plant 200k fruit trees worldwide by 2020. We will be planting apple and pear trees. Bowie State is the only college in Maryland, and the only HBCU as a part of this worldwide initiative.
