Wild Dill Kids Blog!
The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation is a nonprofit charity dedicated to planting edible, fruitful trees and plants to benefit the environment and all its inhabitants. Our primary mission is to plant and help others plant a collective total of 18 billion fruit trees across the world (approximately 3 for every person alive) and encourage their growth under organic standards.
FTPF provides support, resources, and guidance for those interested in planting fruit trees and spearheads a variety of planting programs. These programs are aimed at enriching the environment, providing nutritious food sources for wild and rescued animals, and improving human health by bringing delicious, fresh, locally grown raw fruits and vegetables of the highest quality into the lives of all people.
FTPF also seeks to secure land throughout the world with the sole purpose restoring native plant ecosystems with an abundance of fruit trees and plants that benefit the surrounding air, water, and soil and provide food sources for wild animals.

Pumpkins, Ghost, and Witches...Halloween is almost here! As we have fun dressing up in costumes it's important to remember that a lot of the accessories, clothing and decor sold on the market is far from being safe for us. Here is a short list of ideas on making this halloween safe from chemicals and other nasty stuff!
Tests conducted by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics found that many contained heavy metals like lead and chromium.
Glowing Green and Safe:
Instead try this 100% natural face paint from Wee Can Too, Made from Organic Fruit & Vegetable powders!
Whether you’re going as a princess or a witch, the matching polishes are often filled with frightful endocrine-disrupting phthalates and volatile toxins like toluene.
Glowing Green and Safe:
You don't need to give up the fun polish colors for that finishing touch on your costume. Instead try these super Halloween colors from the awesome and super safe brand Piggy Paints. Non-toxic and even made in USA! Say good-bye to harsh, smelly chemicals and hello to Piggy Paint...it's as Natural as Mud®! They have awesome colors from Orange to Green and even Glow in the Dark!
Often costumes bought from the drugstore or Halloween store are full of nasty chemicals, starting with the fabric itself and even down the bag it is packaged it. You can smell the fumes from throughout the store.
Glowing Green and Safe:
Get creative and make a homemade costume with clothing you already own or from an outfit that can be re purposed as everyday clothing. We love this Alice in Wonderland dress, just add a few simple accessories and voila you can go from a cute regular dress to Halloween costume! For babies there is no reason to put them in a stuffy, polyester costume, instead try a super soft comfy organic romper with a Halloween inspired print like this Black Cats romper from Winter Water Factory.
Little babies don't need complicated costumes, keep it comfy and trendy with a Halloween theme outfit like this black cat romper.
