Building a World Garden in Your Back (or Front) Yard

During a recent trip to Haiti, members of Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church in Asheville, N.C., discovered that many families in the Caribbean country grow 40% of the food they consume in their home gardens using whatever resources are available to them. The Haiti gardens are supported by Famers Movement of Papaye (MPP), a grassroots organization of 20 farming cooperatives located throughout Haiti, and Mark Hare and Jenny, mission workers of the Presbyterian Church USA.

The trip inspired the members of the church to recreate this World Garden in their own front yards back home. In this video, the children of Grace Presbyterian Church explain how the World Garden works.
