Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

The land I occupy has been organically managed since I arrived here more than five years ago. I have planted many fruit trees, flowers and vegetables which attract the local birds and bees. I continue to plant fruit and flowering trees as and when I find them. The birds and bees in their turn help to pollinate my fruits and vegetables. The Jaco parrot nests in the forest above me and visits this my area twice a year giving the birdwatching enthusiasts a real treat. There are at least four species of hummingbirds which regularly visit my flowers along with many other species of birds As I live far from the village, it is necessary for me to provide for my power needs with a micro hydro turbine system which runs from the local stream. That same stream also supplies all the water for the house and hut. Also solar panels help to provide enough power for lighting, a refrigerator and charging electrical items like cell phones, laptops etc.,

The Impacts of this Trip

I generally recommend my Rasta neighbors and Carib Indian friends to provide workshops to teach people (when requested) how to make traditional foods from local plants such as coconut oil, cane juice, cocoa and the local Carib cassava bread.
As I have visited many of the tourist sites over the years I can generally give helpful advice to visitors on the advisability of certain sites for different age groups and also weather considerations. Many of the sites can be rather taxing for the not so young and nimble footed.
I am also a member of DOAM. This is the Dominica Organic Agricultural Movement and it aims to facilitate the development of a sustainable food system in Dominica through strategic education, organizing, and business development activities.
All my food and plant waste materials are composted in my garden, but if I run out of my own compost, I just have to drive a short distance down the road where there is an organic composting site.
