Eric C. Lu has very little to say about his work, and that’s actually fine with me. Upon first glance I noticed that he has incredible technique and he has honed his craft to be able to let what is moving him take over. He’s colorful, creative and not in the least afraid to be messy. This last part is what seals the deal for me in saying that his work is masterful. Because in order to be messy, you first have to be one hell of a good craftsman, at least in my opinion. Here is what he had to say:
The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation is an award-winning international non-profit dedicated to planting fruit trees and plants in an effort to alleviate world hunger, combat global warming, strengthen communities and improve the surrounding air, water and soil. Through their programs they donate orchards where the harvest will best serve communities for generations. Their goal is to plant 18 billion trees- approximately three trees for every person alive. They have been featured in USA Today, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times and The Today Show, and have recently launched several new programs.
You can bring a fruit tree orchard to your community through the FTPF and Dreyer’s collaborative program, “Communities Take Root.”
You can make a gift donation with a gift certificate or purchase organic tree-grow kits on their site.
