Project Report | Dec 26, 2013
Improvement/Alternative Income via Tree Planting

By Croix Thompson | Caribbean and West Africa Regional Manager

Trees for the future monthly report

Bethel (Cabaret) /Haiti

December 2013

The main activities during this past reporting period are:

Nursery maintenance:  The rehabilitation works at the nursery of bethel summarizes watering seedlings, preparing the substrate for filling polyethylene bags, sowing of certain species particularly oak, coffee, Prunus sp, Psidium guajava.

Agricultural service in Bethel: A meeting was conducted with the farmers in the area to explore the possibilities of distribution of bean seeds (red variety) during periods of the fourth quarter of the year. Farmers are expecting TREES support on that matter.

Monitoring visits planting: visits have been conducted regularly to ensure that seedlings planted manage and to motivate the beneficiaries to take care of

Meeting with the Woman’s group: We worked with the womens association that is  involved and highly motivated in development activities in the area. This basic organization is called (GFVB = groupman Fanm Vanyan Bethel). The next year the members of the women associations will be trained on alternative income generating activities such as farming, processing and preservation of fruits, vegetable crops, etc. These activities will increase their income and even without improving the nutrition of different members of their families.

Tree Plantation vs animal husbandry: Free grazing animals is one of the major constraints to the success of reforestation projects in Haiti because that allows animals to eat the trees. This challenge has encouraged some goat farmers of the area create parks for animals to better manage against some predators and reduce the risk of destruction of our tree planting.
