The Garden Project – 2015
A 3/4 acre plot of land was prepared and planted in cooperation with a local agronomist and two local colleges. Three Haitian agronomy students assisted throughout the project.
The Haitian family participated in preparing the land, planting the seeds and seedlings. They continue to manage the watering, weeding, harvesting and sales independently.
The garden is successfully managed by the family and is producing (had a successful first crop) crops that not only provide vegetables for them but also enable them to sell produce at market. As of February, 2016 they have completed two growing seasons, have been able to purchase seed for a local agronomy student to start plants for their third crop to be planted very soon.
