St Lucia Earthboxes

I was a member of the 4th team to St Lucia. Myself and one other person worked on contacting sites, training locals on how to use Earthboxes and planting various vegetables with locals. We were driven to a nursery that supplied the plants, fertilizer and other gardening needs. It was very hot and humid and looked forward to cooling down in the swimming pool with other volunteers
Since this was relatively new to the locals it was hard to judge the effectiveness of this program I had heard some opposition from an element of the local population.
