The project started in December 2020 and is expected to be completed by late 2021. The Corporation has identified staff from Abaco, along with New Providence, Andros, and other islands, to participate in this project with the view of expanding the project to other islands utilizing the skills and techniques acquired.

“[It’s] very impressive. I had no idea the amount of the agricultural program at C.V. Bethel. I’m very proud,” said Minister Lloyd.

“I believe that is a symbol for other young people that this is no longer a back-breaking, pothole industry. When I was getting up, nobody wanted to go into agriculture. They saw it as hard work and not glamorous. They indeed were not interested because they didn’t know the profit in it. But today, it’s very lucrative.
