Workshop in St Eustatius
Great interest of the local participants and significant experience of the expert Christian Harel made workshop in Sint Eustatius very intensive and successful. Follow up of this workshop is coming. Water collection must be considered as the main problem to be solved, for the already existing greenhouses as well as the pilot greenhouse project.
The other priority is the roaming goats which are devastating the vegetation and resulting with severe erosion of the soil. This can be considered as a priority. Irrigation of forage crops with a conservation and storage system (hailage) could be very innovative and would pave the way for a more intensive breeding system and starting to ban the roaming animals.
