Off to Haiti!!

The time has come to put to practice the hard won knowledge of moringa and other tropical agricultural interventions.

On January 28, my friend Chester Venhuisen and I will depart Pearson airport for Haiti, where we will work with Children’s Lifeline in Arcahaie (about 1 hours drive north of Porte au Prince). The mission has one couple from the USA on site, employs over 150 people from the surrounding area and feeds 3,000 children per day. Our mission, should we choose to accept it (which we have!!), is to create an agricultural program. This program will produce food for the mission as well as teach the local people how to use moringa and a variety of other crops to improve their own health outcomes. Very exciting for people like myself with a green thumb and passion for improving people lives. We will be introducing the concept of tree based agriculture as a component in food security. Trees can be used to create micro climates where more tender vegetable crops can thrive.

I was reading some technical notes about moringa today which say that under intense culture, moringa can produce 650 tons of vegetables per hectare. Is global hunger really necessary? Considering that people can and like to use this this veggie as a dried additive to soups and stews. I would say there a lot of moringa powder benefits , which is why I own moringapowderbenefits.ca.

We will also be promoting the use of vetiver grass for erosion control, contouring hillsides, mulching and soil reclamation. There are great youtube videos on this subject.

There is also a construction education component in which we will be teaching the building trades. Such as carpentry, masonry, concrete work and other construction techniques.

Keep an eye open for my online sales of moringa powder, a product of Haiti. This will be a product which gives twice – benefits your health and the Haitian economy. Is this the new model for global development?


Thanks for your support of this venture. Keep an eye on my blogs!! Which will be available, technology permitting!!
