Grand Sud Conference 2012

The first regional Konferans Agrikol was held in Leon, near Jeremie, in the Department of Grand Anse on Haiti's southern peninsula.  92 leaders from 39 different organizations were present over the course of the three-day conference.

The location was the conference center operated by Caritas Leon, a beautiful rural location with several newly constructed spaces for eating and sleeping.  The kitchen staff included several locally-produced foods and shared some of the jellies and nuts that are packaged in their rural women's cooperatives across the department.
