As part of its ongoing efforts to raise awareness on the nutmeg plant in the community, telecommunications provider LIME held a mini tree planting session last week.
The nutmeg plants were planted at the company’s Mt. Hartman compound by General Manager Angus Steele along with members of the senior management team.
‘We continue to push the awareness of the benefits of the nutmeg both to colleagues and customers who visit the compound”, said Steele.
According to the local Lime manager, the nutmeg tree plays a vital role in Grenada’s economy and “it is important that we recognise the many attributes of this product”.
Last year, the company provided over 1,000 nutmeg plants to farmers.
In addition, the company was also a sponsor of the Grenada Nutmeg Festival in November.
As part of the activities, Lime included a nutmeg art exhibition in its stores organised by painter Eric Johnson.
The company also gave away nutmeg plants at November’s Mt. Moritz breakfast.
Currently, the telecommunications provider is working on plans to recognize Safer Internet Day on February 5.
Safer Internet Day seeks to promote more responsible use of online technology and mobile devices, especially among children and young people across the globe.
The theme for this year is, ‘Online rights and responsibilities’ with a view to encourage users to ‘connect with respect’.
As part of the activities to raise awareness, members of LIME’s senior management team will visit various schools across Grenada, Carriacou and Petit Martinique over the next few weeks.
