Fresh Organic Spinach from Haiti

Fresh Organic Spinach from Haiti

In the area where I live in Central Haiti, fresh organic spinach is available year-round.

We spoke to a local in the area and she told us this fresh spinach that reaches the marketplace in Hinche everyday is produces near the lakes of Pandiassou.

Thanks to the rain water captured in these man made lakes that farmers continue to cultivate in the dry season. They mainly produce vegetables like peppers, onions, tomatoes, spinach, cabbages, and more.

Haiti : The Red Pill vs. The Blue Pill

Haiti : The Red Pill vs. The Blue Pill

My fellow Haitians, this is your last chance! After this there is no turning back!

You take the BLUE pill, and you will accept things just the way they are, Haiti will remain the way it is (se konsa bagay yo ye) Haiti will never change (Ayiti pap janm chanje) AND your life will never change!

You take the RED pill and you wake up, you challenge the status quo, and you begin demand more from the Haitian authorities because you know you deserve more, you deserve a better country, a better standard of living and a better quality of life.

Which will you chose?

Haiti Travel Warning - Level 4: Do Not Travel

The US Government warned its citizens not to travel to Haiti on Friday, 14 Feb 2018, due to widespread, violent, and unpredictable demonstrations in Port-au-Prince and elsewhere in Haiti.


On Monday July 09 2018, the U.S. State Department issued a Level 4: Do Not Travel Haiti Travel Advisory following violent protests that erupted after a hike in gas prices.

Do not travel to Haiti due to civil unrest and crime, was the Haiti travel advisory

There is currently widespread civil unrest and violent demonstrations in Haiti. Protests, tire burning, and road blockages are frequent and unpredictable. On July 9, 2018, the U.S. government authorized the voluntary departure of non-emergency U.S. government personnel and their families.

Right now, the U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens. The Department will review this guidance as soon as the current security situation is resolved
