The fair will be held at the school on Monday, January 16, 2017. The occasion will also be used to launch Project Ecology, Agriculture, Trade (E.A.T), aimed at providing training to those "with lesser exposure to the green movement and the benefits of sustainable lifestyle practices."
Healthy meals, vision boarding and a self-love workshop titled "Beautiful Melanin, No Bleachin'!" are scheduled for the day.
Sis. Fan'aye SunLight-Selassie, founder of RasTafari TV sought items on a Wish List provided by the school nurse who lacked the basic necessities for the students. The Bob Marley Foundation did not hesitate at the request and stepped up like troopers to play their part. The Foundation not only donated all items of medical supplies from the list, they also gifted a generous donation of farm and garden supplies to start the first bed for growing a kitchen garden at the school.
Cedella Marley has expressed love for Project E.A.T. and pledged support to ensure success on future endeavors. Other subscribers of RasTafari TV Network have been donating and everyone is encouraged to help this noble cause as the work is indeed great and labourers few.
