Kombit: The Cooperative tells the inspiring story of how Ossining resident Hugh Locke and Haitian agronomist Timote Georges worked with thousands of small-scale farmers in Haiti to plant 5 million trees and double their organic crop yields at the same time. Using charitable funds to incubate a range of farmer-owned agroforestry businesses and processing operations for export, the extraordinary results have gained international attention. Could this be a model for addressing the combined global challenges of food security and deforestation?
