The leisurely strolls through the gullies of Barbados are back.
Come Saturday, March 13, the Ministry of Tourism, in conjunction with the Ministry of the Environment, will kick off the Tourism-In-De-Gully series with a guided walk through Blackman’s Gully, located in St. Joseph.
Barbadians and visitors alike will discover the history and hidden secrets of this natural treasure, when they trek through it for over two hours, from 9:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m., taking in its flora and fauna and communing with nature.
The thrust, on the part of the Ministries, has as its key objective to encourage environmental stewardship, while boosting the tourism product of Barbados.??
Patrons will be afforded the opportunity to hear more about the geography of the gully and the usefulness of its ecosystem from a variety of resource persons.?? They will speak on topics that include the medicinal value and potential of various plants in the gully. There will also be a cultural presentation that includes drama, tuk, poetry, folk songs and the sounds of Birdman.
Participants are required to assemble at the car park at the Grantley Adams Memorial School, at 8:30 a.m.?? firstname.lastname@example.org
