Reforesting Haiti, Five Million Trees at a Time.

Did you know that Haiti used to be the richest agricultural country in the Caribbean? After decades of natural disasters and political instability, the country is 98% deforested with almost no agriculture remaining. But Timberland has taken on an ambitious project: to plant five million trees in five  years. Of course they cannot do it alone. The film follows Timberland and their partners at the Smallholder Farmers Alliance as they embark on this impactful project.

1 hr. 4 min. 2016.

Free event in partnership with the Lowell Film Collaborative. A big thank you to our sponsors, Enterprise Bank, Eno, Martin & Donahue LLP, and Mill City Environmental, for making this film series possible.
