New video update on Sewanee’s agroforestry project in Bois Joli, Haiti

Close

Sewanee professor Deb McGrath and students are working toward a potential solution to the twin problems of poverty and deforestation in Haiti: payment for ecosystem services. They are working with Zanmi Agrikol (Haitian Creole for “Partners in Agriculture,” a sister organization to Paul Farmer’s Partners in Health), using agroforestry to produce both coffee for export and carbon offsets. A video slideshow documents their progress. Learn more about the project here and here.
