International Community Plans Haiti's First National Botanic Garden
In a push to develop a National Botanic Garden (NBG) in Haiti, several U.S. environmental groups, including Denver's Botanic Gardens, have partnered to plan Haiti's first NBG.
Port-au-Prince hosted a workshop for these collaborators to meet to develop an NBG in Haiti's restoration of its infrastructure. Workshop participants besides the U.S. included France, Canada, Britain, and the Dominican Republic.
Minister of Tourism, Stephanie Villedrouin, committed her department to realizing the NBG initiative.
