Agricultural Training Center

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.
