Beginning with only 40 people in the early 1990’s, it grew to about 550 people in 30 lakous and then more than doubled in recent years as everyone could see the results. Whole swaths of mountainsides are now covered with trees – 14 MILLION so far in the southern mountains of Haiti. The Episcopal Church has been actively supporting reforestation work in underdeveloped countries for many years, and now the Anglican Communion has joined this work.
