TO HARVEST THE RAIN - Gros Morne, Haiti
“The sun took my corn, took my beans, my sweet potatoes, my plantains, my harvest!” laments farmer after farmer - meaning the rain didn’t come at the right time. How can farmers outwit the rain’s unpredictability with climate change accelerating it? How do they harvest the rain???
As you know, our project, Pas a Pas, came into being on February 3, 2020. We had wanted to start in September 2019, but events in Port-au-Prince -- the violence and continuous demonstrations in the streets which also caused the closure of schools and educational institutions -- didn't allow us to do so.
