Glenbrook is an agricultural community. There are many farms near Camp Cabarita and our neighbors are happy to take time out of their day for an agricultural tour to share and learn.
On and agriculture ecotour guests:
- meet farmers
- learn about local crops
- times to plant
- soil preparation
- crop rotation
Local and adjacent farms grow a wide variety of tropical fruits and vegetable – explore the diversity and methods. Farmers are as friendly as they are willing to share their knowledge and experience. You’ll have an opportunity to harvest anything that’s in season and either enjoy immediately or carry it back to Camp and contribute to the next meal. Crops that do particularly well in area soils include many types of yam, sweet potato, melon, cucumber, sugar cane, pumpkin, corn, pineapple, callaloo, plantain, banana and many, many more.
