In a more specific context, a konbit is a type of cooperative labor exchange that the farming system in Haiti once relied on. A landowner would invite people to help clear, till, plant, weed, or harvest their field. They would provide a meal for the workers, and usually reciprocate by helping those workers in their own fields. This system of solidarity has virtually disappeared in Haiti. However, the term remains very popular in contemporary Haiti. It is used to refer to any type of collective work.
