    The Sustainable Life Garden project in Illinois-Sao Paulo-Bahia spreads sustainable education to more than 4,000 kids and their families through the Americas. See more information in our Education & Youth as well as in the Agro & Environmental pages about what we do.

    After the success in Chicago with the IAMS Sustainable Life Gardens project, the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation in combination with Partners of the Americas São Paulo-Illinois and Bahia-Pennsylvania chapters decided to replicate the project in two states in Brazil. Christine Smyrski, Illinois board member and landscape architect traveled in advance to Mococa and Botucatu in São Paulo to organize the project. Luiz Andre Bispo de Jesus, Illinois POA member and native of Itaparica, traveled to Itaparica, Bahia in 2008 to organize the project there. In March of 2009 more than 500 fruit trees were planted in 23 designated public schools (Mococa, Botucatu and Itaparica) http://phentermine375mgcapsule.com/phentermine-generic-help-your-change-the-eating-habits/ and one village (Igarai, Mococa).
