Presented By: Konferans Agrikol Sid

We invite you to participate in a conference that would help strengthen connections amongst those working in the agricultural sector in Haiti and spend time learning from one another. Hopefully, the conference will take place at at a later day in 2019 at HRM Mission in La Baleine, South Department, Haiti.

This conference is tailored to encourage conference delegates and presenters to connect and learn from each other’s successes and failures. There will be plenary sessions in the morning followed by workshops in the same themes in the afternoon. Some of the subjects include:

  1. Fruit processing
  2. Natural insecticides
  3. Fruit tree management

Our goal in this conference is to connect delegates, brainstorm ideas together, and learn from each other. We invite anyone to share about a topic or technique during an afternoon workshop. There is a section in the registration form to fill out regarding this option.
