Community Garden Project Sees Growth

Residents of Fond des Blancs, Haiti, survey the demonstration garden for a community development initiative. The project involves choosing 20 community members to start gardens and teaching them proper gardening and maintenance techniques. These producers will then sell these products to the SBHF hospital and the community, thus increasing local production of fruits and vegetables.
