Jaden Lakou is inspired by the concept of “victory gardens” in the US, which have proven to be highly successful in addressing food insecurity. By implementing this practice in Haiti, we aim to create a sustainable, diverse, and culturally significant solution to the pressing issue of food insecurity.
Food gardening is not only vital for individual households but also contributes significantly to national, regional, and local economies worldwide. By embracing Jaden Lakou’s approach, we can decrease reliance on imported foods, reduce farm subsidies, and minimize pesticide/antibiotic usage – resulting in a more self-sufficient and sustainable agricultural system.
Jaden Lakou recognizes the positive social impact that backyard gardening can have on Haitian society. By empowering individuals with the means to grow their own food, we can strengthen communities and promote self-reliance. Backyard gardens become not only a source of income but also a platform for bartering services and fostering strong neighborhood ties.
