The Giving Grove

Tortoise employees enjoy annual opportunities to help revitalize communities by planting community fruit and nut tree orchards. Their sweat equity supports The Giving Grove, a non-profit organization that assists urban low-income communities across the United States in improving food security by developing ecological and sustainable tree gardens that transform neighborhoods and provide residents with healthy food choices.
