A spirit of togetherness and a sense of accomplishment filled the air at the Reopening of the Content Area Extension Office in St. James on Thursday January 25, 2018. Farmers and community members joined forces with the RADA St. James Extension Staff to refurbish the office in a record time period of three months by volunteering with labour and building supplies.
A welcomed move for over 900 farmers in the Adelphi, Goodwill , Palmyra, Lilliput, Eden Vale, Spot Valley, Blitheston, Paisley, Chatham and Mount Zion Districts that will be serviced by this Extension Office. Already plans are in place for the use of the Office as a working resource centre providing relevant trainings to increase productivity and demonstration plots practically showing agricultural best practices.
During the Re-Opening Ceremony testimonials were given of individuals and teams that worked tirelessly based on the need to have the RADA Area Office back to full functionality after over 15 years. A true demonstration of Parish initiative and teamwork with farmers at its best.
We certainly look forward to great achievements for the RADA Content Area Extension in St. James.
