30 VARITIES OF MANGO TREES WILL BE CENTRAL TO EXCLUSIVE DEVELOPMENT ON ST. KITTS ...

Kittitian Hill... a re-imagined Eden

November 2, 2011 in Accommodation








(Forimmediaterelease.net) 


In keeping with the vision to create a luxury lifestyle resort that operates according to the principles of sustainability and giving back to the community, the creators of Kittitian Hill in St. Kitts, West Indies, have decided to re-imagine the project to become even more deeply connected to its philosophy.

Following the addition of renowned architect Bill Bensley to the Kittitian Hill development team less than a year ago, his unique talents and experience are now integral to the development of the project.

On April 4, 2011, Bensley presented an inspired refinement of the plan for Kittitian Hill, subsequent to a comprehensive review of the design and layout. 

The look and feel of the resort is now re-imagined in the fashion of those found in some of the world’s most exotic places and seeks to solidify Kittitian Hill’s position as a leader for sustainable luxury living in the region.

THIS CHART EXPLAINS THE PROBLEM IN EUROPE ...

This Chart Is The Holy Grail To Understanding Europe...

A really depressing aspect of watching the Eurozone crisis unfold is that for all the effort they're putting in, they're not getting at any solution.

The way European leaders see it, it basically goes like this: Greece borrowed way too much money, and if only it had been responsible it would be fine. Italy might have borrowed too much, but maybe it's not too late to save it. And so if Greece can get a haircut, and Italy can reform, then everything is fine.
Unfortunately, this isn't just simplistic, it's wrong.

Europe doesn't just have a debt problem, it has -- as Nouriel Roubini reiterates out in a new paper -- a flow problem. 


The weaker periphery states run persistent trade deficits with the stronger core countries (Germany, basically). And since the periphery doesn't have the currency devaluation tool, it plugs the GDP gap (remember, a trade deficit subtracts from GD…

Hi Will


Now back trying to settle after my many trips, as we begin to prepare for the 2012 Mango Festival and Conference as meeting will be set up to meet with the Minister of Food Production, Land and Marine Affairs, we are asking them to play a greater role in the event - already on board is the University of the West Indies (UWI) and the Inter American Institute for Corporation on Agriculture (IICA) and the Tourism Development Company.


We are asking UWI to use their paved area a triangle on campus as well as their Conference theatre - the agenda opening ceremony should include our partners and Minister, it would be necessary to rent tents,tables, chairs, prepare handouts, media, promotion, entertainment, and more for both conference and festival.


Many of our Caribbean member organizations indicate a willingness to participate.

Questions to be answered.


Funding?


Will your conference guest cover their stay here and should we be looking for a conference hotel, if yes, wha…

SEGUN FRESHPLAZA...LA CAMPAñA DE MANGO ESTA RETRASADA EN PERU....

Perú: La campaña de mango aún no empieza

La temporada de mango en el Perú se encuentra atrasada. Según nos informa un productor y exportador de mango peruano, aún no se inicia la temporada debido que la floración está atrasada. "Creo que iniciamos en la quincena de este mes, cuando debiamos de haber empezado en la semana 40". afirma un productor peruano.
Además, se espera que ésta campaña la producción sea mucho menor. "Tenemos pronosticado que la producción va a ser 50% menos en comparación a la temporada anterior" afirma José María Sernaque, uno de los productores y exportadores de mango del Perú
Por menor oferta,y la misma demanda, se pronostica que el precio va a ser mayor y el costo se elevara en la compra de la fruta.

Oravetz is the president of the Arizona Rare Fruit Growers, a local chapter of the California Rare Fruit Growers, an organization that promotes the preservation of exotic fruit and educates those interested in growing fruit not typically grown in North America.

For the first two days of the Rare Fruit Festival in Tempe, registered participants can tour the private gardens and nurseries of local rare-fruit growers around the valley. 

On Saturday, on the second level of Arizona State University's Memorial Union, classes will be held on how to grow rare fruit, and vendors will sell tropical fruit plants. The cost is $45 per person and includes lunch and dinner. To reg…
