Arnova helping backyard farmers and Ex Pats

Arnova continue to assist backyard gardening farmers to combat monkey raiding. We are please to celebrate our initial donation of seeds to various home gardens and will continue to monitor the gardens and sustainability.

Below are some of the photos recently taken of seeds we donated earlier this year and last year when we first arrived and at the same time encouraged farmers to diversify to crops which monkeys are not that partial to like lemon grass, onions, peppers, basil.
MONKEYS AND DOGS PROJECT

A huge thanks to Janice from Barking Lot for sponsoring this humane dog tethering device. This device will add great value to the monkey management programme on Nevis. Like in many places in the world, dogs are used to guard properties and in Nevis often to discourage monkeys. Monkeys soon learn that the dog is tethered and will soon start raiding where it can’t be attacked. However, this device is not only a more humane solution if dogs are tethered but gives them a greater and safer space to run and enjoy greater exercise. Many dogs are forced to be tethered as a result of attacks on livestock and poisoning. Contact Barking Lot - only EC270 and it will allow your dog to protect a greater area of your garden whilst enjoying more freedom!

ASSISTING EX-PATS AND OTHER RESIDENTS WITH ELECTRIFIED FENCING

Although Arnova currently have insufficient funding to purchase electrified fencing for backyard farmers and Nevis residents in general, we have been offering our services to both backyard farmers and ex-pats with regard to how they can convert their existing fence into an effective electrified fence at minimal rates. These services include carrying out audits on the sizes of the properties, the vegetation growing on each side of the existing fence and offering our expertise on the simple installation of additional wiring and the purchasing of solar boxes. Some examples of owners who have taken our advice below:
