“YOUTHS of Fulifoe village in north Malaita are set to go into kava farming.
“The surge in interest was stemmed from a one day basic Kava training held at their village over the weekend.
“The basic Kava training was organized by their village leader Radley Solomon Raramo and was facilitated by Philip Subu and Lesley Sanga from Malaita Kava Revolution Movement in Malaita province.
“Philip Maesubua said that he is happy to see that a lot of youths have shown interest to go into Kava farming apart from cocoa and coconut.
“I am happy to see that during our short training, more youths have shown interest in this crop,” Mr Subu said.
“He added that the training covers the basics of planting and managing the crop as it grows.
“As a young man who wants to see Malaita youths involve in this crop, I am really happy that youths of Fulifoe have shown interest in this crop.”
“Mr Subu said that north Malaita is yet to venture into this crop like other parts of Malaita.
“Lesley Sanga further added that kava is a crop that suits rural communities well and besides, the return is satisfying.”
