  1. Kenton, I hope you will follow-up to see how effective this session was and will be. I wish they could do something similar with agriculture. You can encourage students to get involved by giving a pig here, a goat there, and a calf over there. I am sure several have access to farming properties and can be encourage utilizing the land by planting crops. It’s a much easier vehicle than tourism, especially since that’s on the decline in SVG.

    1. Dear Skeckpalmer, I do not believe the Government want farming as an option considering the great lengths they went to in destroying it. It is now officially replaced with tourism.

      May I suggest there should be a national farming day or even week when all farmers come together in Kingstown outside the financial complex or outside parliament when it is meeting all wearing black arm bands and black funeral clothes. Marching to a brass band playing funeral music.

      Placards should be carried telling the world how this government destroyed agriculture. Local, regional and international journalists and TV companies should be invited under the leadership of Kenton X Chance.

      Despite all the occasional window dressing by the government and the minister they have proved themselves as incapable in resurrecting and restoring agriculture which the are guilty of destroying.

      Prior to the December 2015 General Elections the prime minister made a pledge to replant 2000 acres of bananas. Now almost 12 months later they have failed to replant even 1 acre. That turned out to be an untruth designed to capture once again the vulnerable farmers minds and have them vote for something that was never going to be. Once again tricked and lied to. It is most obvious there was no intention to plant that 2000 acres because there was no provision for such a project in the budget f after the election.

      Unfortunately the farmers are naive and lack the education their children have. But the children’s minds are now poisoned against agriculture in favour of the sciences, our education system has seen to that.

      Skeck I appreciate that you are the only one of all the commentators who frequent this site who actually cares.

  2. I think this is is wonderful initiative because the youngsters can use what the learn on other islands.

    The biggest problem with Vincentians in the tourism industry is attitude, Vincentian in general have a bad attitude.

    People like Digicel and Flow have been doing some good training in attitude, despite the fact that some employees just cannot help slipping backwards sometimes.
