Grenada goes for green to attract tourists

Written by editor


ST. GEORGES, Grenada (eTN) – Grenada’s government has announced its intention to embark on a tree plant project that will result in various spice producing trees being planted at visible areas (such as tourists’ ports of entry) as a form of tourist attraction.

“Grenada is known as the Isle of Spice and the intention is for visitors to see the various spice trees from the time their enter our Ports of entry, just as you will see a roar of palm trees in Hollywood pictures so too a visitor will see a roar of spice producing trees when they enter the Isle of Spice,” said Agriculture Minister Denis Lett. He explained that this was one of the recommendations from a three recently held agriculture retreat.

The trees, expected to be planted within the coming six months, will include nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon and bay leaf. At present, these trees, which are responsible for millions in revenue, are usually found in the forest or on farms.

Lett says that agriculture stakeholders believe that agriculture and tourism is integrally link and the tree planting project will not only become another tourism attraction but it will also promote Grenada as a “green destination.”
