NIA seeking to embrace NYBG Edible Academy concept

The Nevis Island Administration (NIA) is seeking to embrace the concept of the Edible Academy at the New York Botanical Garden (NYBG), thanks to the intervention of Mr. James Gaskell, a resident of Nevis. Premier of Nevis and Minister of Education Hon. Mark Brantley said recently at his monthly press conference that he was introduced to the idea when during a recent visit to New York.

“The Edible Academy really is a wonderful concept. What they have done is they bring school children; they teach them about crops and plants. They are able to plant and come back each week to tend their little plots and from the food that is produced in that plot they learn how to cook it.
