The Commission’s Project Manager, Sheena Warner explained that the Commission took the opportunity to interview some of the patrons who attended the agricultural exhibition held in Queen’s Park from February 25-27.??

The survey was designed by Commission member, Dr. Alafia Samuels, who was assisted by the Barbados Boys’ Scouts in conducting the survey.?? The Scouts operated from the Government Information Service tent and created and displayed a number of posters depicting the event’s theme – Achieving Healthy Lifestyles Through Agriculture.
