Cancelled Ag Show comes into blossom online
The island’s traditional Agricultural Exhibition should have started today, but has had to be sidelined because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
However, pupils at the Bermuda Institute in Southampton have staged a mini-Ag Show online with produce from their vegetable gardens.
The children also decided during their online lessons this week to donate their produce to help feed the island’s homeless.
Latoya Tull, a teacher at the school, said she had “never seen such a strong drive from students desiring to learn more about cultivation”.
She added: “This year was promised to be an exceptional one because we had more students who showed a keen interest in being a part of the Ag Show.
“Our principal, Wayne Edwards, had already provided an area on the campus for growing produce because this was an important component of our school.
