Preparation work on the St. Kitts and Nevis Pinney’s Beach Park Project is moving apace with 850 landscaping plants at varying stages of growth propagated at a nursery in Cades Bay. The plants made up of trees and ornamentals will later be transported to the project site near Pinney’s Beach where construction is expected to commence soon.
The first 16 of 10,000 trees were planted at the St. Thomas’ Primary School (STPS) on January 29, 2020, as part of an environmentally-friendly islandwide initiative by the Department of Agriculture. Under the project, both ornamental and fruit trees will be planted at the island’s schools, public areas and homes throughout 2020.
