Starting a new nursery in LaSucreie

We've been working with some wonderful people in the community of La Sucrerie to create a new nursery.  This is a great example of how the Haiti Tree Project works.  We find partners who have a strong desire to reforest their community and then we work with them in multiple ways.

First we provided education through a seminar led by an agronomist Jean who talked about the importance of reforesting around the gardens and gardening in terraces to stop erosion and mudslides. (apologies for the blurry pictures!)

And then everyone gets involved filling seedling backs with with compost and good soil for planting hardwood trees.

We're really excited about the enthusiasm everyone has for this project!   We appreciate everyone's help so far in making a small, but meaningful difference in our world!
