BDF’s green thumbs


Share post:

THE BARBADOS DEFENCE FORCE (BDF) is marching on an ambitious programme
which one day may result in it being able to feed itself.

As part of the Military Initiative for Livestock, Agriculture and Poultry (MILAP) programme, the force will be dedicating a section of its military bases – Pelican, St Ann’s Fort and Paragon – to growing produce and raising livestock.

The SATURDAY SUN visited St Ann’s Fort to see what was happening, and the sight was an impressive one. There were golden apple, gooseberry, mango, sugar apple and lime trees as well as okras, Chinese and savoy cabbage, spinach, beans and much more.

The man in charge, Warrant Officer Class 2 Leroy Stuart, is full of ideas and has big plans going forward. (CA)
