WHAT WE DO

We plant fruit trees

In Haiti, Jamaica, Antigua, The Bahamas, Barbados, Costa Rica, Dominica, Puerto Rico, St. Vincent, Suriname, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Pakistan, Tanzania, Uganda, and U.S. Virgin Islands.  We donate breadfruit trees, mango trees, avocados, cashews, and many others.

Our vision is seeing self-sustaining communities and entrepreneurs, based on agroforestry.
