The SFA, in partnership with Timberland, has reintroduced cotton to Haiti and is now working towards producing regenerative cotton. Hugh and his co-founder Timote Georges were featured in the documentary Kombit: The Cooperative. Hugh is also CEO of Smallholder Data Services (SDS). He is author of The Haiti Experiment, has given a TEDx talk, and writes and lectures extensively on smallholder farming and sustainable development.
