Rare fruit collector, and Annona enthusiast, Robert Smith, had recently relocated to Vieques, PR, and brought his amazing collection of rare fruit trees.  His plan was to profoundly expand the island's horticultural and agricultural biodiversity, by introducing new species that have commercial potential for the area (such as Annona macroprophyllata, A. salzmannii, A. globiflora, Plinia coronata var. Restinga, Eugenia selloi, and many more).  

As you know, Puerto Rico, and Vieques were ravaged by Hurricane Maria not long ago.  Vieques was hit hardest, there are almost no standing trees left, and will be without power for many weeks, even months (some saying no power until next year).  

Robert Smith needs your help, to fund his efforts to feed and sustain himself during this time of crisis, where he has limited food, no power, no running water, or reliable medical aid.  He needs your financial support so he can continue his mission to bring new and amazing rare fruit trees to Vieques, that have untapped potential, to enrich the local economy of the island, and it's agriculture.
