Title

Irwin Park staff

Description

"Rake & Machete: And so the Gardens were built. Over the past six months, months more than 1,000 workers, most like nursery helper Hyacinth Rickett and gardener William Heath, using only basic garden tools, have transformed an 80-acre site in the Montego Bay River Valley at Irwin into Jamaica's new Eden -- The Tropic Gardens of Montego Bay, which will open early this year. The workers are shown in the 14-acre nursery which will supply the Government park and furnish plants for the government's island-wide beautification schemes."
