We envision a thriving ecosystem throughout Haiti, where natural springs flow abundantly, clean water sources are plentiful, crop yields flourish, and soils are fertile, thus restoring prosperity and peace to the people of Haiti.

Our vision includes the establishment of food forests, water forests, legacy forests, community forests, and gathering centers, fostering the reconnection, revitalization, and self-sustainability of rural communities.

To realize this vision, our organization is dedicated to supporting Haitian farmers and rural communities in transitioning to regenerative food, farming, and land management practices. These efforts are essential for replenishing Haiti’s diminishing underground water table. 

Here's how a healthy water table is restored:

 

Why This Matters

Global warming will continue to bring droughts, hurricanes and other extreme weather events to Haiti. It will create more food insecurity and force greater numbers of people to abandon land and homes. It will continue to lead to dwindling natural, human, and financial resources, which in turn will lead to more poverty.

We believe that in helping Haitian to transition to a regenerative food and agriculture system, Haiti will be given power to:

  • End hunger
  • Restore health and well-being
  • Increase the water-holding capacities of her soils
  • Increase crop yields and diversity of crops
  • Restore access to abundant fresh, clean water sources
  • Revitalize local economies
  • Restore rural livelihoods and independence
  • Regenerate ecological health, including soil fertility and biodiversity
  • Promote social justice and fair trade
  • Reverse global warming
Why Build Sustainable Communities

Supporting the development of sustainable communities ensures that money circulates within local areas, leading to resilient communities, robust regions, and a more independent nation. This approach will help Haiti restore her sovereignty. Self-sustaining communities are able to:

  • Enable local markets to meet local needs
  • Build and support the region
  • Promote innovation
  • Increase economic opportunities
  • Build political stability
  • Allow money to circulate within the community
  • Generate other forms of resiliency
  • Become a teacher and example to the world
  • Find their voice in important decision-making processes
  • Strengthen social relationships
  • Create numerous family-owned industries
  • Promote dignity and self-esteem
  • Restore sovereignty and independence
