By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Students at the St Matthew Anglican School in Pomona in the Stann Creek District will be growing their own produce to supply their school canteen with help from the University of Arkansas.

The Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise (MAFSE) said that on Wednesday, Acting Chief Agriculture Officer Dr. Victoriano Pascual was invited to be the guest speaker at the ribbon-cutting for their new chicken coop and vegetable garden beds.

“The chicken coop and variety of vegetables they have planted, including carrots, cilantro, sweet peppers and lettuce, have been obtained through the help of 22 students from the University of Arkansas,” said MAFSE.

“The students have helped build the coop and covered structure as part of a project the University has engaged in.”

According to MAFSE which has a programme promoting school gardens, Principal Anna Mae Ferguson and her staff, the volunteers, Dr. Pascual and the students participated in the ribbon cutting ceremony.

“Students will be able to participate in lessons on growing their own produce and maintain their school canteen at the same time,” said MAFSE.
