Founded in 1997 by Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Florence Reed, Sustainable Harvest International (SHI) addresses the tropical deforestation crisis in Central America by providing farmers with sustainable alternatives to slash-and-burn agriculture. SHI provides long-term assistance, three to five years, to make sure the programs that we introduce actually take root in the communities. SHI works only in communities where we have been invited by local people. We always work in partnership with an in-country organization that shares our goals. Because our projects are locally initiated and supported by in-country organizations, the work will continue long after we have left an area.
