There are many new plants in the Heritage Garden, artfully arranged with informative signage which gives the local name, the scientific name and its use.
Thanks to Bryan Naqqi Manco, Caicos Pine Recovery Project Manager on North Caicos, who devoted Saturday 21st November 2015 to the Museum’s Caicos Heritage Garden.
Additionally, thanks to the Department of Environment & Maritime Affairs Native Plant Nursery in Kew, North Caicos for the great plants and to Lewtide for bringing them from North Caicos to Providenciales in pristine shape.
Special thanks to Natalie Zaidan owner and Mark van Eyssen Maintenance Manager of Environmental Arts for making it happen. The plants were collected, stored and then planted thanks to the management and staff of Environmental Arts. They also cleared and trucked away the dry and unsightly shrubbery.
The garden is taking shape; we have many plans for the future and will keep you updated. We hope you will visit soon.
