Hydroponics, fully automated soil-based grow-boxes soil-less media systems, vertigrow systems, floating raft systems, deep flow techniques – these modern farming techniques are all beautifully displayed at the Technology Demonstration Park of the Faculty of Food and Agriculture of The UWI. Built by graduate students of the Faculty, the Technology Demonstration Park is a testimony to the new agriculture that is possible in our region. Located just off Evans Street in Curepe, it is visible from Agostini Street as you go past the northern perimeter of The UWI’s St. Augustine Campus. All are welcomed to visit by appointment through the Dean’s Office at 662-2002 ext. 82113, or by email: PHOTOS: MARIA NUNES
