      You mean attracting people with a higher budget is bad for the economy…?

    Bonaire to Saba is 503 miles give or take (not thousands of miles). A simple Google search will reveal that. Your welcome.

  • From Claire Frankel on Dutch Caribbean Agriculture Livestock and Fisheries Alliance (DCALFA) visited Saba

    This article makes it sound like we have plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs, fish and goat meat. However, it’s only available in Windwardside on Wednesdays and you have to get up very early to get to the vegetable/fruit market and the fish truck (when it shows up) before everything sells out. The local Windwardside supermarkets also receive their shipments on Wednesdays (usually) and sell out quickly. I worry about our food supply in the case of multiple hurricanes. How can we get more food grown on Saba and more food delivered to Saba?

    • From Malick on Dutch Caribbean Agriculture Livestock and Fisheries Alliance (DCALFA) visited Saba

      I am not certain how long you have been on Saba, however Saba has experience multiple back to back hurricanes in the past and we have always manage food supply adequately. There are times indeed when certain supplies becomes unavailable for a while, but the agricultural ecosystem always produces something else to make up for these shortages.

      I am trying to reduce your level of worry by telling you that the island has made great strides with agricultural production and continues to improve to deal with situations like what you worry about. With more hands getting involve in backyard, small space, verandah and porch gardening, I think we are taking the correct steps to deal with issues like what you say.

  • From Cedric Hassell on Fort Bay road fencing repair starts in July and might take a month

    Just my humble opinion. Wouldn’t it be wise to terrace and plant the fort gut area?

  • From C.R. Hassell on 1 million euros for climate plans BES

    Smaller and fewer cars on Saba may help. Electric cars and charging stations an interesting idea.

  • From Samantha Smith on Letter of Intent signed for Spatial Planning and Housing Measures

    It’s about time that they bring back the option of assisting locals to build their own homes. Years ago, the OYOHF used to offer loans to locals for this. It allows your locals to be more independent and sufficient in being able to get the assistance to build and own their own dwelling. We went backwards instead of forwards when this stopped.
    Our older population, for the most part, own their own homes. They do not have the expense of having to pay rent from their mentions.
    It is a real concern for the younger population who does not have access to family land nor access to loans to build a home. When they reach the age of retirement, how will they survive on pension with the high rent costs and costs of living on the island.
