IN THE POOREST COUNTRY IN THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE WHERE FOOD PRODUCTION IS VERY LOW AND HUNGER IS RAMPANT, NO PROJECT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN TEACHING IMPROVED AGRICULTURAL METHODS USING THE MOST APPROPRIATE TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATIVE METHODS. HCDP HAS MADE AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENT A TOP PRIORITY THROUGHOUT ITS HISTORY. LOCAL FARMERS ARE ASSISTED IN NUMEROUS WAYS SUCH AS TEACHING ORGANIC GARDENING TO AVOID DEPENDENCE ON EXPENSIVE AND DESTRUCTIVE FERTILIZERS, RAISED GARDEN BEDS TO AVOID FLOODING AND ROAMING PESTS, PROPER AND EFFECTIVE USE OF ANIMAL MANURE ("MANURETEA"), PROPER IRRIGATION, SELECTION OF APPROPRIATE CROPS FOR OPTIMUM MARKET APPEAL AND CASH VALUE, AND PROPER WATER MANAGEMENT AND DRAINAGE. MANY TIMES, SIMPLY PROVIDING SEED FOR MARKETABLE CROPS IS AN INCREDIBLE CONTRIBUTION.
