GARDEN AND LANDSCAPING : The aims were :
1- To revive the floral garden beds by weeding, feeding and fertilizing
2- To reap and restore the subsistence crops plots Eg. Pigeon peas, bananas and various kinds of peppers tomatoes, scallions and cucumbers.
3- To reap the mangoes and Guanabana (Sour Sop) to prevent waste by the birds and squirrels.
Climbing mango trees at 80 year. was more exhilarating than climbing in my youth although infinitely more risky. This old lady likes, “Reckless abandonment for the benefit of Christ’s Kingdom. No alarm! We took the necessary precautions.
The overall aim of the garden project is to help the YWAM – SL ministry become self sufficient by producing more of the food they consume at YWAM - Saint Lucia .
Plans are being made to acquire property for this sustainable development. Research is on going to discover similar subsistence projects and systems world wide and to emulate what works and to originate others.
