Breadfruit Propagation in Haiti…it’s Working!

St. Joseph Clinic, Haiti, work-study kids helping to plant breadfruit root cuttings

We’re happy to report that St. Joseph Clinic in Thomassique, Haiti, is successfully propagating breadfruit seedlings!  This is very exciting for us … we really want to plant more trees.

SJC is also producing breadfruit flour from 15 trees donated to them years ago by Trees That Feed!  Read their full report here.  It includes detail and several more photos.

We at TTFF are ecstatic to see this successful propagation program.  It’s not as easy as it looks!  But the good folks at SJC spent the necessary years, with a little help from their friends, to bring this to reality.  It took a while but it’s quite a success story.

Big thanks go to Logan Schulz who sent us this excellent report.  Thanks also to CASE and Mr Alfred McLean in Jamaica, who generously shared the necessary technology.
