We're Developing a Research and Education Center in Haiti
To unify and empower local farmers with community, education, and research to enable their industry to flourish, while also connecting the local with the global by bringing university students, both U.S. and Haitian, to conduct courses and field research trials at the center.
Harvest Craft is doubling down with our investment in Haiti. We are proceeding to establish our own roots and facility in-country to further invest in the development of local agricultural industries.
In partnership with Eden Reforestation
In 2018, as we were developing the HCA, we noticed a great need for reforestation and agroforestry on the property and in the surrounding area. We decided to partner with Eden Reforestation Projects (edenprojects.org), and they have since built a nursery on site. Eden Projects is propagating, distributing, and planting 80,000 - 100,000 fruit trees a year to local farmers, along watersheds in the area, and of course on-site at the HCA, so we can host agroforestry demonstration plots and research trials for the local farmers to learn how best to manage these trees.
