BAMSI Brings the Sweetness to Sandilands Primary School
Nassau, Bahamas, October 27th, 2023 – The Bahamas Agriculture and Marine Science Institute (BAMSI) explored the sweet side of native agriculture with some of the nation’s youngest students at Sandliands Primary School. Principal Antoiniette Forbes along with members of her sixth grade class welcomed BAMSI and Senator, the Hon. Tyrel Young, BAMSI Chairman, earlier this week as they planted a Sugar Apple Tree. The students were excited to be part of the first phase of the Institute’s One-2-One Tree Planting campaign that aims to plant one fruit tree in each constituency in New Providence and the Family Islands. The goal of BAMSI’s campaign, when completed, is to have planted one tree for every Bahamian. Joining the students, staff and administrators of Sandilands Primary were the Hon. Adrian White, Member of Parliament for St. Anne’s who shared tips on the best way to plant a tree. He also highlighted the positive environmental legacy the students were part of now.
