Providing long-term, sustainable solutions for food security and nutrition for Haitian families.
The Agricultural Training Center (ATC) is one of the six elements of the Love A Child Sustainability Program, located in Fond Parisien, Haiti. The ATC provides a unique place for locals to learn by seeing, hearing and practicing gardening methods that are simple, affordable and will improve the quality of life.
As a “Living Classroom,” the ATC demonstrates the best sustainable agricultural practices to improve food security and promote agricultural-based jobs.
The Agricultural Training Center Pavilion…
Where we teach and demonstrate ideas that work.
At the training pavilion, Love A Child agriculturalists demonstrate techniques for erosion control, composting, organic fertilizers, pest control, irrigation, etc. We also teach locals about “Farming God’s Way,” age-old methods to improve productivity and nutritive value, while preserving natural resources.
