Labour shortage cripple T&T farms
Foreign volunteers work for free in Moruga

Labour short­ages have crip­pled many farms across T&T but in one farm in the sleepy vil­lage of Moru­ga, dozens of vol­un­teers from around the world are com­ing to work for free.

In re­turn, they get to ex­pe­ri­ence the Tri­ni life which many of us take for grant­ed.

The for­eign­ers come from 120 coun­tries across the world in­clud­ing the Unit­ed States, Cana­da, Eng­land, Ire­land, Scot­land, France, Greece, Ger­many, Aus­tria, and New Zealand. They get free food and lodg­ing at One Fam­i­ly Farms, owned by Giselle Granger, at La Lune Vil­lage, near the south­ern coast. The salty sea breeze smell wafts across the farm where cab­bages, mint, pump­kins, patchoi, bread­fruit, let­tuce, chive, toma­toes, pep­pers, me­l­on­gene, and corn grow.

Dur­ing an ex­clu­sive in­ter­view with Guardian Me­dia on Fri­day, Granger said she opened her doors to the world in 2014 when she signed up as a host with the Will­ing Work­ers on Or­gan­ic Farms (WWOOF) pro­gramme.

Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
