Extra resources for St Lucia

Sample text

St Lucia was the first of the Windward Islands to set up a Central Sugar Factory company in 1874. The centre of sugar-cane production moved south from the Castries area to Soufrière, which was also the main area for cocoa and coffee production. The acreage devoted to the cultivation of food crops declined throughout this period. Cocoa was at first largely a peasant crop but, at the beginning of the twentieth century, plantations began to grow it and for most of the next half century it occupied more land than cane.

Like Froude and Pope-Hennessy, I fell in love with the view as we sailed into Castries harbour, but unlike them I was not disillusioned on landing. That year I saw the 199th and final sugar cane crop in the fields and walked miles along empty beaches and rocky coasts. I saw the Pitons and tasted a St Lucia mango for the first time. Two years later I returned and met with Harold Simmonds and Garth St Omer and was taken to view and admire their portraits. Since then I have been back many times in various capacities: as a tourist; as a researcher; and as a consultant to the Windward Island Banana Growers Association.
