About this photo
In Haiti, it is estimated that only 2% of the natural forest cover remains. Rampant deforestation has caused extreme environmental degradation, human health problems, and economic turmoil.
In partnership with Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods (SOIL), we are working to reforest areas of northern Haiti. Our partners at SOIL work with local communities to plant trees that not only improve soil and watershed health, but also provide nutritious food and extra income for families – a win-win for people and the planet!
In this photo, local school children are helping to plant seedlings from the SOIL nursery near Labadee, Haiti. The children learn about natural resource conservation while helping to improve the land with tree planting.
