The Craft and Farmers Market is part one of a three-part project aimed at promoting sustainable agriculture in Sint Maarten.Following the launch, “We will seek to engage the schools, there are two ways we wish to approach this. First, we will seek a partnership agreement with technical schools like Nipa and others, more details will be announced soon. Secondly, we shall seek to adopt a primary school and help develop a sustainable agricultural program.
The third part of this project will be a systemic approach that will help establish a Farmers Association. This association will provide technical support, training programs, and market linkages to farmers. The association will also act as a platform to provide financial support mechanisms to farmers, such as access to credit facilities, insurance, and subsidies. By providing comprehensive support to farmers, we can help improve their livelihoods, increase their productivity, and contribute to the overall growth of the agriculture sector.
“We are excited to launch the Craft and Farmers Market pilot program as part our the development plan for sustainable agriculture in Sint Maarten, This initiative is a step towards building a stronger and more resilient agricultural community.
