Haiti was once an agricultural haven, and we're trying to connect to those roots. The farm contributes to Second Mile's sustainability for a number of reasons.
A way to provide daily, nutrient-rich meals for the moms and kids in our program and all staff members.
A place for women and their family members to learn new agriculture techniques and practice growing food
+ We're all local, organic and natural. No pesticides or artificial fertilizers. No imported seeds. No preservatives.
+ The farm produced enough food to cover all fruit, vegetable and legume needs for over 10,000 meals at Second Mile in 2014, 17,000 in 2015, 25,000 meals are estimated for 2016.
+ Since the Moms stay on site Monday-Friday, they don't have time to go to the market before heading home for the weekend. Therefore, we send each caregiver home with a large bag of produce to assure her and her family can eat healthy wholesome meals all weekend long.
