We've been a bit quiet of late - in part because the fall is a quiet time of year for planting, but also because, as a volunteer run organization here in Raleigh, sometimes we get busy doing other stuff!
But here's some news from Haiti...
We've distributed all the lemon trees that we raised. This is great news, lemon trees grow fast and provide a really valuable crop to the local people. It's a win-win. We tackle deforestation and provide a valuable cash crop.
Those lemon trees that were planted two years ago are growing nicely and have started to produce lemons. These trees survived the drought really well. We'll be planting more lemons in the future!
We're in the process of figuring out the budget for next year so we can buy seedlings and plant more trees. We're also thinking about creating a tree nursery up in the mountain so the people who live up there won't have to come down to get trees.
As always - we appreciate all the support!
