Agriculture

Agriculture is a learning process. The first step is learning current practices in the mountain regions of Haiti.

Challenges Identified:

  • Drought occurs half the year

  • Soil has been depleted - Much of the mountain areas cannot grow. There is no water or electricity available for irrigation.

  • Selling the vegetables/fruits is difficult. Most of the community members sell the same products - not enough buyers. Therefore, most of the food harvests rots.

  • No money to buy more seed or plants

Most of our work in this area is presently on hold.

Here is an opportunity to share prayers, expertise and money.

PGF was approached (2020) by a local youth group whose mission is to replenish the environment with trees for food, wood and preventing further erosion. Haiti has been deforested in many areas as a result of multiple reasons historically.

Thirty youth were involved in the receiving and care of 200 fruit trees supplied by PGF. They were so eager to nurture the seedlings (mango, lemon, grapefruit and cherry trees). Food for many!
