The government should start by giving its citizens other means to cook, and small solar energy stove in every home should be number one priority.

Agriculture is so important, and we can start by asking Israel for ideas.

We can teach our children that all Haitians cannot be doctors, and it is OK to study other fields.

I have been to the middle east, and Israel uses salt water (converted to regular water) to irrigate its crops.

You should see the size of the fruits, and vegetables.

We need fish farms, so we can feed ourselves and stop eating "dead foods" from the world.

We can give families livestocks, so they can use the products to feed their children and it is done all over the world.

If a family has a cow, goat, and chickens it can use the milk or eggs for nutritious meals.

They need tools, fertilizer, and assistance to make the land more productive.

How about cooperatives?

They worked very good in Israel, but we must have roads to transport them rapidly so they do not get rotten.

The farmers should have incentives to remain in the countryside, and farm the land. It is not a far fetched dream, and can be done.

I believe President Joseph Michel Martelly is going to make agriculture successful in Haiti, but he cannot multiply the bread and fish to feed 9 millions.

The entire nation has to get involved, and start growing personal gardens.

We have avocados, mangoes, papaya, guanabana, grenadine, passion fruit, and so many healthy fruits in Haiti.

You can have your little garden, and whites are doing it. The Haitians, and West Indians in Florida have gardens.

I had a garden as a kid, and we use the products.

I planted tomatoes, corn, and pumpkins with the assistance of my parents.

We must use every single piece land in Haiti to grow our own food, so give free seeds to everybody and encourage them to grow things.
