Rebuilding Haiti must start from the ground up, with agricultural education

Gros Morne July 26-Aug 10, 2010

My wife, Jan Pearce, and I went down to the Gros Morne, Artibonite area for two weeks. We were sponsored by the Haiti Project of Riviere Mancelle.http://www.feedhaiti.org/ . Riviere Mancelle is a parish outside Gros Morne. The project is twinned with the parish through the Parish Twinning Program http://www.parishprogram.org/ . Jan is hoping to take Berea College students there next May. I was there to teach a rocket stove building workshop. We also led a workshop on processing and canning mango pulp. Several other projects were undertaken in the two weeks. The major accomplishments of the trip were:
