Seeds For Haiti: About the Program
We are re-packaging bulk vegetable seeds (non-GMO of course) in smaller sizes in Miami for distribution in Haiti. This is a sustainability program: farmers will save seeds from each crop to plant the next one.

We already delivered Batch1 (enough to grow food for ~26,000 people) through Jacmel, where Hurricane Matthew has destroyed most crops. Now we are working on Batch2. For more info about the program, click here.

Projects may include:

Seed Packaging
We are re-packaging bulk vegetable seeds in smaller sizes in Miami for distribution in SW Haiti, where Hurricane Matthew (2016) destroyed most crops, and possibly for other locations in Haiti.

Seed Leader Training
Participants will learn UPG’s Packaging Production Techniques by doing seed packaging. Then there will be Team Leadership Training to prepare them to lead Volunteers during a big corporate events. Experienced Seed Leaders will share their knowledge.

Make Your Reservations

We will provide you with contact info and instructions to get into the building.

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

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 seed types are vegetables requested by people in Haiti, customary foods.
