Belize Adventist Junior College Students Harvest Success with Over 6,000 Plants

Students at the Belize Adventist Junior College are harvesting the fruits of their labor. What was once an overgrown lot is now a field of more than 6,000 plants including 10 different types of vegetables. The project was made possible by the Ministry of Rural Transformation, Community Development, Labor, and local Government, who drilled a groundwater well for the school’s irrigation system college seven months ago. Over the past months, the students were taught how to grow and market their crops. Agriculture Instructor, Alciro Noriega, at the junior college spoke to Love news about the impact that the well has had on the students. 

The instructor added that the College plans to work with the Ministry once more to assist in greenhouse projects for dragon fruits, cassava, plantain, banana, and citrus. The Minister of State in the Ministry of Rural Transformation, Community Development, Labor, and local Government, Ramiro Ramirez spoke about the importance of this project. 

The minister added that they are planning to add groundwater wells in two other schools in Corozal for their agricultural programs.
