A Cohort of Visionary Agronomy Students

Whenever the scale of the work ahead of us to ensure everybody has access to sanitation in Haiti or that the ecological systems are restored to their life-giving potential feels too daunting, all we need to do is to spend a little time with students in Haiti. Throughout the summer, SOIL’s office in the north of the country hosted a few wonderful visits from visionary university students across the region who are setting out to build careers in agriculture, soil sciences, and environmental restoration. In July, a cohort from a university in a town called Pignon and another school in Ouanaminthe came to SOIL’s composting waste treatment site ...

Restoring Long Term Soil Health in Haiti with Organic Compost

This comparison was used two core Haitian crops: tomato plants and moringa trees. When the preliminary results were made available last summer, we were excited to share that the plants that were grown in soil with SOIL's agricultural grade compost had actually out performed their counterparts that were grown using traditional chemical products.  Now that the final results have been ...
