Future Farmers of St. Lucia


I have a good size farm in my backyard that grew mostly weeds. I asked 2 neighborhood boys if they wanted to clear it for me. They agreed to EC$10.00 each and set about with tools that outweighed them. The adults in the community criticized me for using boys to do a man's job. On the third day the boys were joined by other friends and worked to complete the job for gratis. As the boys worked the conversation was constant and about the games they would buy with the money. Ten minutes after paying the 2 original boys they all showed up at my door with 2 pounds of rice and 1 can of tuna and ask that I cook the food to feed all the young farmers.
