Plant Five for Life believes in fostering life-long connections to our children, land, communities and their health starting at birth.

We work to encourage connection to the life systems that sustain each child, and to inspire on-going commitment to care of children, environment and community while creating platforms for community health. 


Plant Five for Life has a mission to plant trees for every child born starting in Pittsburgh and Allegheny County.  Our first program provides a gift of five trees to every child born and aims to achieve this goal in collaboration with our health care community by matching the trees to sites nearest each child’s neighborhood and in need of ecological and social services.


Plant Five for Life is a registered non-profit entity with fiscal sponsorship through New Sun Rising, a 501(c)3 non profit organization. Donations and grants are tax-deductible through their administration. Before we apply for our own 501(c)3 status, we believe that fiscal sponsorship is the most responsible interim step as we hear back from you!
