Help us build a sustainable and resilient agricultural economy on Sint Maarten
Sint Maarten is still rebuilding and recovering from the devastating impacts of hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017. On top of this, COVID-19 is having a severe economic impact on the local economy and community. Due to the crisis, the supply of fresh food has become insecure. To reduce dependence on food imports in the future, large-scale agriculture is necessary to make Sint Maarten less vulnerable and more self-sufficient. There are reserved plots of land to start community gardening and hurricane challenged food cultivation and tillage.We want to move forward with further developing and supporting local agricultural projects on St. Maarten. Therefore we are looking for Volunteers, Agricultural partners and knowledge partners in the field of:+ modern hurricane-resistant farming methods, such as permaculture, hydroponics and aquaponics;+ preparation of agricultural land and irrigation, drainage and collection of rainwater;+ hurricane-resistant greenhouses;+ agricultural machinery and its start-up financing.+ knowledge and advice on how to deal with animal pests on agricultural land, such as the African giant snail, the green iguana and Vervet monkeys.
