The plantain farm survives hurricane season

Hurricane Tomas and the torrential rains and wind that followed threatened to damage and even destroy the first crop of plantains produced by the industrious farmers in Grison Garde, Haiti. Today, the farm is flourishing with about 30% of the trees maturing and ready for harvest. The plantain farm has the potential to help combat malnutrition and to reduce Haiti’s reliance on food imports while providing stable jobs in farming to families in the area.
