PRESS RELEASE – Under the theme “Securing the Future through Gardening,” the leader of the Lucian People’s Movement (LPM), Therold Prudent, has proven once again that he is determined to keep his campaign promise to encourage the cultivation of home gardens throughout the constituency of Gros Islet.
The first phase of the Home & Garden Club programme, which was initiated last year, has benefited more than 200 families throughout the town of Gros Islet and its environs. This year, the programme will be expanded to include the communities of Monchy and Grande Riviere.
On Tuesday, August 19th and Thursday, August 21st, more than 100 additional families will proudly receive a complete set of home garden tools, vegetable seeds, gardening gloves and other accessories.
The third stage of the programme, which seeks to collectively promote food self-sufficiency throughout the various communities within the constituency of Gros Islet and thus empower its inhabitants, will be further expanded to the Corinth and Marisule communities in early February 2015.
