Castle Bruce Recognizes Caribbean Wellness Month
The Castle Bruce Health District, in response to this year’s Caribbean Wellness Month, held an “info hike” on September 21st, geared toward the youth.
This was possible through collaboration with persons and organizations, which were considered to have a SLIC attitude.
“SLIC” means participating in activities which contribute or support positive attitudes and general wellness.
The group comprised of young persons, who benefitted from a comprehensive tour of Koudmen Organic farm and subsequently the Rosalie Bay Resort.
While on the farm, the group got a taste of many organic fruits and learned what types of fruits are significant for certain illness.
Mr. George, an agronomist by profession, also lectured and demonstrated to the group, the tricks of his trade, including the importance of soil and plant sciences, to soil management and crop production.
At Rosalie Bay Resort, they learned the risks that the turtle population now face and the collective efforts needed to conserve these incredible animals.
There was a quick tour on the beautiful grounds of the Rosalie Bay Resort, which is nestled harmoniously in the unique flora and fauna of Dominica.
The youth will also be required to write an essay or story on the activities they experienced during the info hike.
To complete this year’s activities for Caribbean Wellness Month, the Health Team in collaboration with the Castle Bruce Secondary School will put on a mini play called, SLIC and Bubbling on Thursday 26th at the Castle Brue Secondary School.
