MIAMI, FL – Bochika, SAKALA and SOIL are proud to announce the unveiling of a new short video that showcase’s the “Jaden Tap Tap” (Tap Tap Garden) and a positive side of Cite Soleil, Haiti that is rarely shown to the public. We invite everyone to take a moment and enjoy this video that demonstrates the combined hard work of organizations and communities to realize a collective dream.
The subject of the film, the Tap Tap Garden, is Haiti’s largest urban garden, containing more than 500 brightly painted tire gardens and a nursery of 5,000 trees. This video highlights the Tap Tap Garden as a model for urban agriculture for the neighborhood, country, and the world - demonstrating that bountiful, nutritious gardens can be grown in even the harshest conditions. The Tap Tap Garden is an acre of former landfill that now symbolizes hope, empowerment, education, and opportunity for Cite Soleil, one of Haiti’s most impoverished neighborhoods. Most international agencies classify the neighborhood as a “red zone”, yet the Tap Tap Garden is turning it “green”.
If you are interested in visiting the garden, donating, or volunteering, please contact the Tap Tap Garden Directors seen in the film, Ann Marie Warmenhoven (Bochika- firstname.lastname@example.org) and Daniel Tillias (SAKALA- SakalaAyiti@gmail.com), or visit, bochika.org.
