We at Cashew Gardens are committed to becoming a model community that is self-sufficient, self-reliant and self-sustainable.
Project: Climate Smart Community Garden
A climate-smart agriculture technology to demonstrate how a community-owned and managed greenhouse can contribute to the sustainability of the Cashew Gardens community.
This project was funded by the UNDP GEF Small Grants Program and supported by Habitat for Humanity Trinidad and Tobago, the University of the West Indies and the Adopt A River Programme. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, work has been halted until further notice.
Project: Community Composting
Our efforts continue in creating a climate-smart community by engaging in community composting. The purpose is to reduce the amount of organic waste that is being deposited in our maxed out landfills and drastically reduce green house gases. Additionally, research and development in the areas of 'greener' products like organic utensils.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the start of this project has been delayed until further notice.
