Haitiís gardens possess immense potential, including for a secondary food production source and as a component of an integrated water resource management system.  Food production at even the smallest scales is vital in a country of chronic shortage.  Storm water, grey water and even night soil can be fruitfully leveraged.   

Even ornamental plant systems serve as symbiotic wildlife habitat for birds and insects as well as elements of personal and civic identity and pride.  This garden network, from the scale of urban window boxes, rural backyard  kitchen and herbal plots, to community gardens on undeveloped parcels, provides incremental support for the Landscape Stewardship and Living Off The Land patterns.
