When communities are taught to grow food, they begin to create a sustainable, long-term food source for themselves.
On Haiti’s island of La Gonave, deforestation and unsustainable farming practices have contributed to a decline in local food production. The island is isolated and accessing food from the mainland involves extreme hardship and a long journey for the island’s residents. Families face a daily reality of hunger and malnutrition is prevalent.
Beyond Borders (BB) supports schools, families, and community groups in teaching gardening skills. They provide the materials needed to plant and maintain growth of varied vitamin-rich foods. New sustainable farming techniques and fruit tree nurseries bring hope for communities to be self-sustaining in the future.
