The public is invited to support the Youth Farm Programme’s Market Day on Friday, August 21, 2015 at the Princess Margaret Secondary School, Six Roads, St. Philip.
The Market Day, which will run from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., will offer produce grown and harvested by the young participants of the Youth Farm Programme who underwent eight-weeks of intensive training in crop and animal farming.
The programme, which focuses on the production of diversified vegetables, root crops and herbs for local markets, is a collaborative project offered by the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA), the Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development, and the Barbados Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Council.
This year’s programme also saw the participation of students from Antigua.
