    The public is being invited to UWI St Augustine’s first Sustainable Seeds of Survival Fair on Earth Day 2022.

    Tomorrow, from 9am to 1pm, persons can visit the University Field Station in Mt Hope and learn about the importance of seed saving for food and seed security in Caribbean Small Island Developing States.

    The fair will introduce the public to the Faculty of Food and Agriculture’s recently completed Seed Facility for seed testing and seed banking.

    As part of the day’s activities, there will be seed exchanges, seed sales and tours of the University Field Station.
