We finally made it to May! Join us in celebration of Arbor day and donate a few hours of your time. This Sunday we’ll be in New Bush, Tortola assisting Farmer Shallom on the pineapple farm. As always, fruits, gloves and water are provided on site. All volunteers should bring their own cup for water. Below, our last avocado seedling that we intend to plant this coming weekend.

Conserve Caribbean is happy to collaborate with local farmers and community members to host garden sessions where individuals connect through service. As a nonprofit organization our funding comes from generous donations and sponsorships from businesses in the Virgin Islands.

We are thankful for the support received from student volunteers at the Seven Day Adventist School in Sea Cows Bay, Tortola. A wonderful set of youths to work with and we appreciate their determined effort.

Would you like to collaborate or attend our volunteer session? Our group meets up at Brewers Bay Park, near the basketball court, this Sunday at 7AM. From there we hike into New Bush where the pineapple farm is located, operated by Farmer Shallom.

Thanks in advance for your interest. We look forward to seeing everyone this Sunday in New Bush. Truly thankful to our readers and all those who support our programs! Have a spectacular weekend!
