After the Storm: Growing More than Greens

Hurricane Matthew brought heavy winds and waters to the community of Petit Trou. However, that did not prevent St. Paul's School from continuing to educate young minds! With the help of our amazing community of supporters, the school was back in session only a few weeks after the storm. That being said, many of the the school's students are crammed into homes with extended family or living in damaged structures. Some are without the typically required uniforms but are continuing to attend school because of how much they and their families value their education. 

In 2017, the middle school agriculture program continues to grow and thrive. While the school garden was wiped out by the hurricane, our resident agricultural educator and his students got busy, not long after the disaster, replanting their plot of land with greens that participants will be able to eventually take home to share with their families. Carrots have already been produced and tomatoes and cabbage are almost ready for harvest. This program not only teaches students better practices on how to grow produce in their vital family gardens. It also allows students to transform in to active learners and to grow their critical thinking skills. Both of these skills will serve the community well as they trek the road to recovery from Hurricane Matthew.
