We invite you and the residents of Inglewood to participate in our first major effort of 2011 to bring healthier lifestyles and healthy food to Inglewood.

The Fruit Tree Distribution Program, sponsored by TreePeople - a non-profit organization committed to increasing clean air, food access and canopy – is designed to empower community residents to take hold of their own access to food. Through this program, 700 Fruit Trees have been reserved for the City of Inglewood and schools as well as community residents, home gardeners, local businesses, churches and non-profit organizations.

Starting at 9am, The Social Justice Learning Institute (SJLI) will host a day filled with:

*distribution of 700 apple, apricot, nectarine, peach, and plum trees
*many events
*workshops

all that give the chance for residents to get their hands dirty in our organic Empowerment Community Garden. It is a day of celebration and recognition of the Inglewood community taking a BIG step towards greater access to quality, affordable, organic, healthy and culturally relevant food.

We hope that you’ll join us in participating in this very exciting, important and innovative experience. To RSVP, please contact Social Justice Learning Institute Food Justice Coordinator, Danielle DeRuiter-Williams at ddwilliams@sjli-cp.org or 310.597.9638.
