Hard at work

Talking to Mr. Pringle about his goats

Over the past couple days both groups have been working hard conducting interviews of various people at Green Castle Estates. Through interviews they are gathering information to further their knowledge on the way that Green Castle functions so they can gear their recommendations accordingly. After taking another hike back to the main office area, we were able to view the Orkids, goats and the newly started ginger test area. The government has started to branch into different agricultural areas as many diseases and insects have started to destroy crops that once did well in Jamaica. This proves to be very difficult for farmers as they may lose their entire crop in a short period of time. Farmers on the estate are now looking into farming peppers, ginger and a possibility for Banana as well.
