Team Noramise returns to Limbé to survey gardens and continue work on projects begun. A rally on trash removal was held in the marketplace with town residents voicing their opinions and support for the project. Both the Chief of Police and the town Public Defender offered their support. Large drums will be placed to serve as trash receptacles, and fines will be levied for littering. One step forward. The team visited a nearby aquaculture project in order to see what models were locally available for the Camp Cop Farmers’ Association. A search was begun for a permanent home as headquarters for HHN in Limbé.

The team continued its community outreach and fund-raising at various places in the U.S., including a presentation on April 14th to the Orcas Island community. Mimi Anderson and Steve Diepenbrock of Morningstar Farm on Orcas, together with Rosedanie, gave a presentation on the project on Whidbey Island which was hosted by the Sister Island Project whose work is focused on Santo Domingo. Sister Island has generously hosted the team on arrival in Santo Domingo enroute to Limbé. Benefits for HHN were hosted in Bellingham by Julie Connell and in Seattle by Yoon’s Yoga Bliss. Although the gatherings were small, those attending seemed truly committed to helping the work in Haiti move forward.
This video documents the first visit of the Noramise project to Haiti. The purpose is to document our work and share it with our community who help sponsor Noramise.
