Greenport Marowijne | Week 1 & 2

In the first few weeks in Suriname we needed to get used to the warm weather and a totally different schedule comparing to the Dutch. We acclimatised well and had a lot of meetings with stakeholders. Next to that, we visited a local farmer who already uses greenhouse production and designed his own irrigation system. This was very impressive to see, since he had a much bigger and more enhanced system than we expected from an old farmer in Suriname.

We also visited the local department of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fishery. They told us more about their irrigation system and the projects they implement it in, in the region.

After some more research after what the farmers can offer and what is available here, we will really start designing a system!
