The season two finale of “Drink & A Natter with JuicyChef” and friends is quite a lively and inebriated one as they discuss climate change from a Caribbean point of view. Plant Jamaica founded by Andrew Bruce is a nonprofit organisation planting food gardens around the island in the inner cities, schools, wealthy suburbs and beyond. Trouble’s Brewing is the brainchild of Christian Sale, it is Jamaica’s first micro brewing company which produces a premium line of beers, ales, lagers and stouts. Live ECCO is an environmental conservation organisation led by it’s founder, Shelly Ann Dunkley, which teaches the public how to “go green” and the instigators behind Caribbean Environment Week. Jacqui, Andrew, Christian and Shelly-Ann discuss the challenges of living on an island and mitigating climate change from individual to corporate responsibility, navigating red tape and funding challenges, choosing sustainable crops and growing vegetables in an urban versus rural environment. A part two conversation is planned for Season Three.
Drink of the Episode: A flight of Troubles Brewing Beer (watch on the Nyam & Trod YouTube channel) plus honey bourbon and ginger ale.
