Grown in Haiti was founded in 2014 with the creation of a small nursery of diverse food bearing trees. Since then, Grown in Haiti has planted and freely distributed well over 6,000 trees that people are not only eating from, but also profiting from harvests. Their goal is to increase the capacity for local communities to reach higher levels of sustainability. They seek to support practices that lead to healthier soil, genetically diverse ecosystems and ultimately healthier people. Grown in Haiti encourages members of their community to cultivate a sense of personal responsibility as means of enriching their own community and to prevent further environmental degradation and population displacement. With the help of knowledgeable volunteers, they provide education on the importance of reforestation and more sustainable approaches towards living and working with their environment.
