The camp where Greg first stayed in Haiti.

Vetiver grass planting in Petionville Camp

In cooperation with J/P HRO and CRS, Greg Cronin led a team of Haitian women and men to plant vetiver grass to restore some ecosystem services provided by vegetation such as soil stabilization and fertility, flood control, and biomass production. The project built community, made the camp look better, and continued long after Greg returned to the US. Greg saw when he returned to camp that the vetiver had thrived in most areas, and was being used in unattended ways, such as drying clothes, forage, and as trellises for gardens.
