Centre d'Agriculture St Barnabas

CASB is the school where Mitch and I work with the Episcopal Church diocese of Haiti.  There are currently less than 20 students who attend the school, to learn more about farming and agriculture, along with other skills such as English (which Mitch teaches), French, and other business techniques.

The program is a 2 year program, where students have access to hands on experience farming crops such as corn for feed, peppers, eggplants and other vegetables that help support the school financially.  In the future we are working on growing plants such as Soy beans and Bananas to expand the schools crop variety, as well as one day expanding to aquaculture and poultry farming.

Side note, if you are interested in following Mitch's blog also, you can find it here.
