The St. Vincent Botanical Garden was successfully awarded grant funding of EC $7,500 from the New Zealand High Commission Fund - Bridgetown.
The grant funding was awarded for a "Botanical Garden Rehabilitation" project, which aimed at rejuvenating the interest of the general public in Garden.
The project's outputs were; construction five weather proof park benches, installing one hundred new tree signs for better signage and interpretation, as well as purchasing of new plant specimen for trail development and exhibiting.
it is hoped that these new features will enhance the overall visitors' experience at the Garden, and increase patronage by the public, which would also result in the development of greater understanding of the botanical world and deeper appreciation for nature.
