Sweet success of honey harvest

Thursday, May 18 2017

Members of the Brasso Seco/Morne La Croix Farmers’ Association are reaping the sweet rewards of their efforts, with their first harvest of over 25 gallons of honey.

Last July, the community group applied for and received funding in the sum of TT$65,000 from the Digicel Foundation, which assisted in the establishment of a community bee apiary. Since then, the Association has been working closely with experts in the field to get the necessary advice and best practices to ensure optimum success.

Success came on May 3, as the Group launched their brand of honey known as ‘Honey Seco’ at the Brasso Seco Community Centre. The farmers displayed their first honey harvest to the community and other key stakeholders, including the High Commission of Canada, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI).

High on the agenda of the association is the use of climate change adaptation models in the apiary initiative. To date, these include a rain water harvesting system and solar energy. The group also receives the support of the stakeholders in this regard as they too are keen on incorporating strategies to combat climate change.

The association hopes the business enterprise will increase employment and foster further community development.
