(GIS) – The Ministry of Agriculture recently welcomed a group of thirteen students from the College of Agriculture in Guadeloupe. The purpose of the visit was to expose the students to the farming systems in Saint Lucia, and different agricultural techniques.

Paul Edgar, Chairperson of the Babonneau Constituency Council, said the students visited a banana farm in Roseau, and were given at a tour of the agricultural complex in Union.

“On Sunday we had an island tour so that they could get a feel for Saint Lucia. On Monday we visited the feed mill at Vieux Fort, from there we went to a poultry farm at Augier, and then we visited seamoss farmers.”

Odile Kancel-Zennon, Biology and Ecological teacher accompanying the students, expressed gratitude to the Government of Saint Lucia for the opportunity and noted that the group has learnt a lot.

The Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries, Natural Resources and Cooperatives, Hon. Ezekiel Joseph, expressed hope for the continued exchanges between Guadeloupe and Saint Lucia.

The program culminated on Jan 25.
