photos - camp perrin - part 4

The purpose of the trip was to visit the programs at ORE (Organization for the Rehabilitation of the Environment). This NGO was started in 1985 by Sean Finnigan, to improve environmental, agricultural and economic conditions in rural Haiti by promoting high revenue tree crops, improved seeds and marketing programs. The haitian man pictured is an agronomist. He is experimenting to develop hybrid corn that will increase production and also be drought resistant.

This silo is a corn dryer.

There are different test plots of different varieties of bamboo.

Tim looked up and saw this green snake in a tree.

It was a good size and the color blended in with the leaves on the tree.
