Bonne Terre Haiti is a 3 acre farm in the north east of Haiti. We grow food for several organizations (1562 POUNDS to one orphanage alone) as well as teaching farming techniques to improve production while providing employment for up to 12 locals annually.
In 2017 Bonne Terre celebrated 5 years of planting, development and employment! We went from 5 trees on the farm to over 1000 food producing trees! We also have vegetables, chickens, goats, dogs and a cat!
Bonne Terre’s long term sustainability plan involves producing a surplus of food to use for high quality staff meals, sell, and donate to those in extreme need. Vegetable gardens, food forests, and our animals all play an important part in making this system work. All the proceeds from what we sell on the farm go straight towards our yearly budget.
Moringa, Chaya and Katuk are 3 of the most nutritious leaves in the world. We are producing all 3 and providing them to local organizations that fight malnutrition. Foods that have a high nutritious value are key along with educating people on how to incoorporate them into their daily diet. We choose to be culturally sensative to people and help them add and augment the nutrition levels in their food instead of changing how they eat.
