According to the Coordinator's details, 1,295 kilos of cabbage seeds, 436,000 banana suckers and 57,000 bags of compost will be distributed during this month. Adding that the distribution of bean seeds is being reviewed in order to launch a new season with the support of the Alliance Agricole Internationale (AAI) by February.
