Update: 6,000 citrus trees seeded in Haiti

Haiti Tree Planting
Jam Cruiseres work together to seed 6,000 citrus trees in Labadee, Haiti.

With support from Haitian non-profit Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods (S.O.I.L.) and Trees, Water & People (TWP), Positive Legacy and Jam Cruise passengers led the charge in seeding 6,000 citrus trees, thus launching a 10,000 seedling nursery at SOIL’s rural compost site in Limonade, Haiti.

Haiti Jam Cruise Tree Planting
Thank you Jam Cruisers!

Positive Legacy and Trees, Water & People have partnered to offset Jam Cruise passenger’s carbon footprints since Jam Cruise 6, a collaboration that has netted tens of thousands of trees planted and hundreds of clean cookstoves built.  Jam Cruise 10 represented the most ambitious carbon offsetting effort to date, as the establishment of this nursery will lead to a healthier environment, stable livelihoods, and increased tree cover in Northern Haiti for years to come.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this event; it wouldn’t have been a success without your enthusiasm and energy!

  1. Sebastian and Heather were great ambassadors for Trees, Water, People and Positive Legacy on Jamcruise10! We really enjoyed being able to help in this small way, and we definately look forward to being able to contribute more substantially in the future for these great initiatives!

  2. Sebastien, I would have loved to have been there! We’ve gotten wonderful reports and photos from folks on the cruise. Thanks so much for partnering with us! I hope this is the beginning of a long and fruitful relationship! (Pardon the pun). Best, Corinne, Comm & Admin Director, SOIL
