The team planted a wide selection of vegetables and the crops harvested from the garden will be given to the kitchen of the Fancy Government School to feed the students of the school.

The group was officially launched on May 14 at the Fancy Government School with the motto: Eat Healthy….Live longer. The objective of the group is to provide a wide variety of vegetable seedlings to farmers at an affordable price throughout the year.

“We are fulfilling our promise to the community to provide assistance on a regular basis, and I am happy to see the turnout of staff, farmers, students and residents of Fancy at this our first collaborative effort,” said John Gidharry, country manager of Digicel. “We are pleased to see this initiative to fruition and we are happy to partner with the people of Fancy in this respect.
