Launching the People's Garden : Quick Trip Summary!

If you follow us on social media, you likely saw a number of post regarding Kenel and Lauren's recent visit to Haiti. On this 6-day trip, the Jaden PèpLa team was able to accomplish a number of huge steps for the farm's growth.

1) A big thanks to everyone that has contributed financially, because we were able to make some big next steps in construction of the farm house. At this point, we have an outdoor toilet ALMOST complete, and the house is ready for a roof and doors (with a completion goal of Jan 2020).

What does this matter so much?

Well so far, we have been unable to buy equipment for processing peanuts and the moringa because of a lack of secure storage while the farm house was under construction. With the completion of the doors and roof, we will begin early processing of moringa peanut butter and have a safe place for workers to stay while on the farm.

2) With a little creativity, we produce our very first bag of dried moringa! Is it scalable, no. But it gave us a low-tech way to demonstrate

how we can begin producing this amazing product. It also helps to help explain to the local community what we were looking to accomplish with this project. For those that will begin growing moringa, they can also duplicate this process themselves.
