Mr. and Mrs. Tomas above definitely blew us away with their passion for reforestation. They lived on a bare mountain with nothing, I mean nothing growing, the first time I visited them in 2010. The entire mountain was just rock and they begged me for help. They kept pulling out their pockets and showing me that they are empty. I said, “All I can offer are trees.” And Tomas said he’ll take trees. So over the next two years I saw his mountain transform right through two droughts from lifeless to what you see here. His property spreads way behind the house and he planted and watered all that we offered: mangoes, lemons, oranges, grapefruits and hardwoods. He was a nobody who became an example for all the village. Today their basic needs are met by what the trees provide. Many are very tall now like in some of the other pictures below.

Day of Trees in Haiti. They announced to all surrounding villages to come and get the Sed trees. Lots of people came trickling in all day maintaining social distancing and taking trees home. Everyone is quite happy about the project.
