This commemorative event will be held on January 23rd, 2015, commencing with a parade from Kingstown (Agriculture Input Warehouse) to the Botanical Garden.

The Parade from Kingstown to the Botanical Garden will culminate with a symbolic commemorative ceremony of the handing over of the breadfruit plant brought to St. Vincent on the HMS Providence, by Captain Bligh on January 23rd, 1793.

This reenactment ceremony is also intended to be a highly educational event on a very important aspect of Vincentian History and civilization.

The event will highlight the wider historical significance of the Botanical Garden, regionally and globally as a plant propagation and conservation Garden.
