ABOUT Seeds For Haiti

Seeds for Haiti is part of the UPG Seeds of Paradise Program.

We are re-packaging bulk vegetable seeds in smaller sizes in Miami for distribution in SW Haiti, where Hurricane Matthew has destroyed most crops.

These vegetable seeds are Heirloom or Open Pollinated seeds (not GMO and not Hybrid), so the farmers can save their seeds and replant them. The types are vegetables requested by people in Haiti, customary foods. Each Seed Set includes at least 10 different types, a mix of greens, grains, beans and other veggies so Haitians can provide their families with a healthy, balanced diet. Seed Sets vary in size, with enough seeds so that between 20-100 people can feed themselves.

S4H Batch #1: Seeds for ~24,000 people, more than 17,000 individual packages (in production now).

S4H Batch #2: Seeds for ~15,000 people (in planning now for 2/21).
