Appleseed Expeditions was named after John Chapman (also known as Johnny Appleseed), who used his passion as an orchardist to provide food for those in need. He planted nearly 100,000 acres of apple tree orchards in the NW territory of the US in the late 1700’s so new settlers and the impoverished would have food during harsh winters. He desired to use what he had been given (his passion & education) to improve the lives of people around him.
Like Johnny Appleseed, we too share in the same desire to help others. Appleseed Expeditions was birthed with a vision of providing an outlet for students to gain inspiration and passion for the world and the people in it. We are planting seeds of service in the lives of students so they too can use their passions, talents, and education to serve our global communities.

Watch lives being changed as hope blooms when students assist our Appleseed service projects. They will be doing things like tutoring orphaned children, building daycare centers for impoverished communities, and planting coral that’s become endangered along the FL Keys.

During a typical science tour we will teach the importance of preservation and how we can educate and encourage others to use their ecosystem in a sustainable manner. Some of our groups help developing or poor communities by providing technology, education, or filtration systems that help with sanitation and thus aiding the people group while reducing waste and contamination.
Travel with us through history to see how self-sacrifice and community service has been engraved within the bedrock of our Nation. Our American History programs are designed to inspire leadership in the lives of students by connecting them to the past.
