St Kitts and Nevis has officially opened what is believed to be the largest greenhouse in the Caribbean.

The 24-metre-tall, 14,000-square-foot greenhouse is part of the long-anticipated St Kitts Eco Park, which debuted on Friday.

The Eco-Park is a cooperation project between the governments of St Kitts and Nevis and Taiwan, with a host of local plants, herbs and flowers and an array of tropical fruit trees.

“It incorporates the successful integration of tourism, agriculture and renewable energy,” the government said in a statement.

“The Eco-Park signals the way forward for ecotourism and rural development,” said St Kitts and Nevis Agriculture Minister Nigel Carty. “We are changing the rural landscape of St Kitts and Nevis. This is indeed real progress and real change for the people of St Kitts and Nevis.”
