Can Strawberries grow in the Caribbean?

Ms. Diandra Rowe, Assistant Managing Director at Abbey Garden Farm.

I graduated from the University of Technology Jamaica class of 2012 with a BSc. in Hotel and Resort Management. After graduating from university I worked in the sales industry in the capacity of branch manager for a small electronics store, afterwards I moved on to train for a supervisory position with a well established supermarket chain, six months in I decided it wasn’t for me so I took on a job as a sales advisor for a luxury car dealership. Despite excelling and being offered a senior sales advisor position after having worked with the company for only three months I then took a leap of faith and resigned to return home and carry on the family business which lacked proper management and was on the verge of being shut down. I have been farming full time since January 2015 and I have no plans to change career paths in the near future. ­čÖé
