Oct 13, 2022

Students at the Green Bay Primary were given an opportunity this week to explore self-sustaining methods, thanks to the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority (ABTA) alongside The Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries 

The students embarked on a tree planting exercise under the theme “Feed the Future “at Green Bay Primary School. 

The main aim is to encourage young people to plant trees but more specifically fruit trees, as it will aid in becoming self-sustaining and improve their health. 

Mrs. Vashti Ramsey-Casimir, Senior Tourism Officer responsible for Sustainable Tourism Development within the Ministry of Tourism said “we depend on nature for our health and wellness and that we all have a role to play in maintaining a healthy environment and preserving our heritage and culture,”.

Meanwhile, Acting Director of Tourism Tameka Wharton and leader of the ABTA Wellness Strategic team said this activity “reinforces the importance of maintaining a sustainable Tourism offering, which reaches into the community whilst promoting the destination,”.
