We're Plowing Fields in Haiti!

With the start of the New Year, we are busy supporting plowing operations in northern Haiti, in the village of Gros Morne. Our Director of Haitian Operations, Ardouin, tells us that Gros Morne has a large body of farmers, with five collective organizations, including the Citizens from Granplen. There are more than 3,000 members, principally farmers, and they are very excited to have TractorShare support!

We're currently plowing collective fields of subsistence farmers. Their primary crops are beans, corn, cabbage, and millet, and having access to TractorShare assets will significantly increase their yield. The need is great, and Ardouin says that he plans on working through the weekend to keep up with demand.
