The Department of Agriculture will host Open Day 2016 from Thursday 21st to Friday 22nd April, 2016 at the Department of Agriculture Grounds from 8:30 am to 7:00 pm. This year, the time has been extended to give people a greater opportunity to attend and participate after working hours.
Open Day 2016 is held under the theme â€œEngendering Resilience to Deal with Global Realitiesâ€. The Department of Agriculture has teamed up with the organizers of Earth Day to highlight the effects of climate change on the Earth and the need to focus on conservation. According to Melvin James, Director of the Department of Agriculture, this yearâ€™s open day will be different, with additions such as agricultural health where nurses will be on ground to vaccinate.
