St. Vincent

More than 120 farmers and farm workers recently turned up at the Sans Souci Learning Resource Center in St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) for a four-day training workshop in developing and marketing of marijuana by-products.

The workshop hosted by Acres Agri, a company specializing in the development of cannabis by-products was geared towards training Vincentian farmers who are interested in growing marijuana for medicinal purposes, by giving them the specialized tools that the medicinal marijuana industry demands. Anyone thinking about growing their own marijuana may want to first check out these seed banks in order to obtain the necessary materials and gear to do this – this opportunity is good for growers of all experience levels and will give you the power to produce your own marijuana so you can’t be ripped off by exorbitant prices of weed. It may interest prospective growers in Australia that they can learn more about obtaining such seeds online and getting started from home. There’s a wide selection of seeds available so there should be something for every taste.

Minister with the responsibility for Agriculture and Labor, Sobato Caesar, told the participants at the opening of the workshop that the discussion was not about smoking marijuana, but how they can create employment through the medicinal marijuana industry.

He said the Acres Agri is one of many companies interest in doing business in SVG, but not only must there be the appropriate legislation, the farmers and farm workers must be trained to carry out the best practices possible under expert guidance towards ensuring that the correct yield is obtained.

The minister noted that there are many job opportunities in the industry and it is expected that legislation should be tabled in Parliament in June this year.
