    Support Sustainable Harvest International (SHI) s work with families in Central America growing cacao in multi-story shade forests. These forests protect soils
    Message 1 of 2 , Feb 1, 2009
      Support Sustainable Harvest International (SHI)'s work with families
      in Central America growing cacao in multi-story shade forests. These
      forests protect soils and provide a home for wildlife. In fact,
      approximately 85% of the birds that have left deforested areas are
      returning to these "forest gardens." Cacao is a valuable cash crop
      that enables the families working with SHI's programs to increase
      their incomes while protecting the environment. SHI's local field
      trainers provide families with materials and training in techniques
      like pruning which can increase cacao production by as much as 70%.
      Charity Navigator recently named SHI as one of the 10 Best Managed
      Environmental Nonprofits.

      For just $45, you can Plant A Forest of Chocolate! SHI will send you
      a beautifully-designed Gift of Hope notecard and a delicious jar of
      fair trade, organic chocolate sauce from Robin's Chocolate Sauce.
      Your Gift of Hope will give a family in Central America seeds,
      nursery materials and training to plant an organic multi-story plot
      of cacao in their community. Cacao (what is used to make chocolate)
      is a valuable cash-crop that can be grown in plots that mimic the
      natural forest. These multi-story farms provide families with a
      diversity of produce, mitigate global warming and create wildlife
      habitat
      With just a hint of lime flavor, Robin's award-winning Tropical Dark
      chocolate sauce is made with 70 percent dark chocolate. Robin's
      Fair Trade Certified ingredients help family farmers in developing
      countries receive a fair price for their products, which leads to
      higher living standards, thriving communities and more sustainable
      farming practices. On Fair Trade farms, slave labor is strictly
      prohibited and farms are inspected to ensure that Fair Trade
      standards are being met.
