This year’s Jamaica Diaspora Conference theme is “Building Pathways For Sustainable Development”. At Farm Up Jamaica we realize that when building, it’s best to build from ground up.
We will kickoff the Farm Up Jamaica Run/Walk Fundraiser for Health and Food Security at 5:00am at The Emancipation Park in New Kingston Jamaica. The funds raised will help us complete Jamaica's First Climate-Smart Institute in South Manchester. The impact is profound as it will help to change the lives of young Jamaicans who are interested in improving communities across the Island through the expansion of organic agriculture. Reduction of crime and poverty is inevitable once we put idle hands to idle lands.
The 3K Run/Walk is an event that every Jamaican or friend of Jamaica should find a way to support. It is a very meaningful and measurable way to promote healthy sustainable livelihood while helping to reduce Jamaica’s food import bill. If you can not attend then simply sponsor a local Jamaican student or a loved one. Please isit our website to find out how you can become actively involved www.farmupjamaica.org.
