Howell Gillett

“I want to be thankful to the Ministry of Agriculture, especially C.E.O. Mr. Alpuche who is very hands-on. It was a breeze in requesting him to do this for us and we are happy for it. The farming in schools project, three schools have been identified and those projects are not just to teach the kids about farming, but to offset the cost that comes along with a feeding program. So very soon we will be having that and as a matter of fact the Social Security Board is sponsoring that. I won’t get into the details for the basic reason that a total has not been agreed to.”
