Established in 2008, we're expanding to build an interactive goat dairy at a primary school in Grenada, West Indies, the first of its kind.
To ensure a solid, long-term foundation for community empowerment, food-security and responsible citizenship in Grenada, The Goat Dairy has now partnered with St. Patrick’s Anglican Public School to create an educational dairy facility specifically aimed at youth development. This will be a fully functioning goat farm, complete with barn and milk production capacity. The Goat Dairy will provide training for staff and students and will supervise all operational aspects of the facility. Milk produced at St. Patrick’s will be processed at the central facility of The Goat Dairy, located at Belmont Estate.
As a nucleus for learning, the St. Patrick’s facility will offer endless educational benefits and dividends in practical science, math, language, home economics, responsible business practices, community ethics and the arts. Through both hands-on and classroom activities, students will learn the responsibilities associated with animal care, growing their own food, composting and record-keeping. To expand its impact, this community-wide program will network with additional schools to create opportunities for other children and young adults in the surrounding region.
Students will have the opportunity to explore creative expression through the development of their own print and video media productions to instruct their peers and new farmers on the basic concepts they have learned. They will participate in awareness campaigns featured in local and regional media, such as The Goat Dairy’s website, Facebook, local newspapers, television and radio. These broad educational and citizen-building experiences arising from the St. Patrick dairy facility will significantly contribute to the development of responsible citizenship for a new generation of Grenadians.
