Toledo Coconut Growers Register as Co-operative

Southern coconut growers are getting organized. This week the Department of Co-operatives held a registration ceremony for the Toledo Coconut Growers Co-operative Society.  The group is no longer an ad-hoc farmers’ group, but has a new status giving it access to a variety of services and entrepreneurial development programs. The co-operative operates from Big Falls Village and has sixteen men and six women as members, hailing from various villages in the district. Collectively, they have planted eighty acres of coconut.  In addition to government officials, present for the registration ceremony were farmers of the co-operative, community leaders, the District Agriculture Coordinator, and staff of the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security and Enterprise.
