in Life in Saint Lucia by | no comments



During the recent visit of HRH Prince Harry, owner of Calabash Cove, Konrad Wagner,(also the Honorary Austrian consul), was fortunate to spend some some with the Royal heir and dashing Prince.

The presentation was on tree planting with Rotary and Rotary youth groups like Rotaract, Interact as well as the Babonneau Youth Sinergy.

Mr W ” We talked about planting native tree species like Teak, Mohagony, Capeche, Mauby, Neem, Cinnamon, Moringa and why it is so important to plant these trees. They not just help against soil erosion and air purification but also are important economic factors with people deriving economic benefits from the mature trees.”

“Prince Harry was very engaging and rather pleased that Saint Lucia was one of the first Commonwealth Countries that took H. E. Queen Elizabeth’s“Canopy Challenge” to heart by genuine reforestation efforts as well as  dedicating a piece of forest as special protected area.”
