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.
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!
