In 2021, faced with severe food insecurity, PiFò Haiti began supporting a community garden in the capital city, Anse-à-Galets. The gang violence on the mainland has affected the cost and availability of food on La Gonâve.  Most merchants spend an entire day travelling across the water to purchase products to sell on the island. There are so many safety concerns associated with going to the mainland, both on the boats as well as the perilous roads. This "new norm" meant growing local produce and strengthening agriculture on the island was a top priority. 

Starting in 2023 we began planning a large garden project in the mountainous community of Palma, which is a very fertile part of the island. The soil is much more conducive to growing crops and it's conveniently located close to the largest market on the island.  The goal for the Palma garden is to grow produce used by locals daily, such as hot peppers, parsley, onions, garlic, cabbage and carrots. Once harvested, the vegetables will be sold to the market merchants, allow our team to act as "wholesalers". In 2024 a 120 foot hand-dug well was added providing the desperately needed water for the crops.

We will be taking on some bigger roles in agriculture, such as a drip irrigation system and solar power initiative. 

The entire community is excited to see the progress! Let us know if you'd like to be a part of these opportunities.
