Barbadian youth have been given incentive to get involved in agriculture, entrepreneurship and healthy eating.
The ‘Barbados Youth Equipped to Achieve’ has signed an agreement with the Rural Development Commission and the Youth Development Programme to support an island wide project to encourage the 'Grow What You Eat' approach.
National coordinator of the global environment fund of the United Nations Development Programme David Bynoe says the agreement promotes sustainability.
The project which began eight years ago at Gordon Walters Primary is now in 43 primary and secondary schools.
As its new partner, the RDC will be planting palette and tyre gardens in six of the schools, starting with Ellerton Primary Tuesday morning.
Marsha-Ann Clarke of the ‘Barbados Youth Equipped to Achieve’ organisation has a vision for the extension of the project.
