We are always trying to add variety to the diet of our 38 children to help keep them healthy and maintain their weight. Food in Haiti is expensive so we decided to plant a garden to supplement the food that we buy. As of right now, we have planted coconut trees, banana trees (plantains), corn and black beans.
In Haiti, we do not have genetically modified seeds so we are able to dry our seeds after they are harvested and replant them. It’s a great way to save a little bit of money. Our only expense after the first crop is the cost of the gardener that we hire to help maintain the fields.
