Everything from rosewood to lion fish was on display at the ITVET Compound, but Ministry CEO Dr. Wendel Parham told us that in the end the Ministry hopes to establish a bridge between financial institutions and entrepreneurs who sustainably harvest and use these products to make everything from utensils to jewelry, and even a fish dinner.

The event was in commemoration of the recent International Day of Forests observed on March 21.
