first_imgAnnie St Luce of the Dominica Infirmary accepts seedling tray from Ryan Anselm, Technical Officer in the Division of AgricultureNine care homes across the island received care packages of a different kind this morning from the Division of Agriculture’s backyard gardening programme.The homes got seedling trays, small garden tools and large plastic barrels to use as water cisterns- all meant to help Dominicans feed themselves.The trays contain a balanced mix of short term and medium-term crops of varying nutritional values.The packages included leafy vegetables like kale and lettuce, vitamin rich plants like tomatoes and cucumbers, starchy vegetables like corn and carrots as well as protein-rich beans and peas.Agriculture Director, Ricky Brumant says most of the nine homes already have backyard gardens.“More homes have than not,” he said to media, “but the idea is to ensure than every home has.”Residents of these care homes will be able to eat what they have grown in a 4-week to 3-month time frame.Brumant explained, “Lettuce, cucumbers, string beans and bok choi can be ready by week four while tomatoes and carrots take a longer time.“That’s how we should do our backyards so that you can have different foods at different times.”Annie St Luce, Director of the Dominica Infirmary, one of the nine non-profit homes receiving nutritional support responded upon receipt of the package, “I’m very happy that we are here for this occasion. I must thank the Ministry and the extension office here in the Gardens.”St Luce shared that the Division of Agriculture and the Dominica Infirmary have a close relationship.“We’ve had our kitchen garden or about four years and we have been supplying our kitchen with herbal seasonings as well as smaller produce like carrots and cabbages. Some of our seedlings come from you, even some of our compost comes from you.”The Infirmary also receives annual Christmas care packages from the Agriculture Ministry.“We are really happy that you can partner with us in that way. Thank you and I continue to wish you well in this endeavour,” she said.This initiative is part of the ministry’s Coronavirus Food Security Programme.This initiative, guided by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Ministry of Health and Wellness concentrates on food production as an apparatus to prepare, mitigate and respond to and recover from the Covid19 pandemic with special emphasis on national food security.The Government of Dominica spent EC $162,000 to procure seeds and produce seedlings and planting materials for farmers island wide.(R) Mahaut Care Home accepts seedling tray from Dr Almario Casimir, Project Coordinator in the Division of Agriculture (L) 363 Views   no discussions LifestyleLocalNews Nine Care Homes Get Backyard Farming Packages from Agriculture Division by: – May 15, 2020 Tweet Sharecenter_img Sharing is caring!

first_imgOfficers noticed the individuals making their “mark” on the mural around 11 p.m. on Tuesday.The juvenile suspect was given a notice to appear and was then released to parents.Meanwhile, two other people were accused of also vandalizing the mural on August 4, just after it was completed, and in separate incidents.Red paint and tar were used in those scenarios.Nearly 40 people created the mural, in an effort to improve the spirits of law enforcement following recent tensions around the country. Tampa’s new “Back the Blue” mural has become quite popular in its brief existence, but not for the reasons you may think.According to police, the image honoring their ranks was vandalized this week, making that the third time in just two weeks.They identified and arrested three adults and one minor for the incident, in which the group spray-painted profanities and drew pigs on the image.Interestingly, officers didn’t have to go too far to catch the group in the act, as the mural is located just outside of the downtown police headquarters.The three adults, none of whom are from that area, are 19-year-old Emily Ann Gabaree, 18-year-old Alexander Thomas Drummond and 18-year-old Seth Michael Raigoza.Tampa Police now offering a $3,000 reward for info on whoever spilled paint on the illegal ‘Back the Blue’ muralhttps://t.co/ppXaMTMDbX— Creative Loafing: Tampa Bay (@cl_tampabay) August 5, 2020last_img read more
