The Fiji Corrections Service (FCS) continues with the success of their commercial farm.
On Monday, it began harvesting their nine acre ginger farm at Field 25 in Naboro.
Business development manager for the FCS, Superintendent Sakiusa Veiwili said this was another milestone for the FCS, as it is the first time that they have planted ginger as part of their commercial activities.
“We have been working closely with a few experienced inmates, who are farmers by profession and this of course has boosted our farming activities in Naboro,” Mr Veiwili said.
“Through our rehabilitation program, it is hoped that the inmates involved will learn more about ginger farming and its advantages and will implement the knowledge learnt in their own communities on their release.
“We have also received expert advice and support from the technical officers of the Ministry of Agriculture and have steadilydeveloped our logistical support in the past six months as land preparation works were carried out,” he said.
Two markets have already been identified to buy this lot of harvested ginger from the FCS.
Harvesting will continue untill March 30, 2014.
