TEDx Talk - Trees are Financing a Farming Revolution in Haiti

You are invited to watch my recent TEDx talk on the work of the Smallholder Farmers Alliance in Haiti. This short video tells the unlikely story of how a humanitarian worker, an agronomist and a shoe company joined forces to plant some trees and ended up launching an agricultural revolution. Find out how trees have now become a form of currency that smallholder farmers are using to grow more food, combat climate change and empower women... with implications far beyond the borders of Haiti.

Who knew the simple act of planting trees could so profoundly change lives, transform communities and inspire hope!
