Forget about Creol Architecture - What about Creol Agriculture ?

Herbalists & agronomists at Nature Seychelles' "Creole Garden"
The international Environment Day theme this year is 'Think, Eat, Save'. Linking food and agriculture with the environment is timely. It comes at a time when Seychelles has been ranked the last country in Africa in meeting agricultural goals - a very dubious distinction indeed!

I have pleaded repeatedly for a new approach to food and nutrition security in Seychelles. The Nature Seychelles’ Heritage Garden at Roche Caiman is showcasing some exciting aspects of this new approach to a distinctly Seychellois agriculture - “going back” to what I call the Creole Garden.
