PART 2: COME CRUISE AROUND THE GREEN MARKET IN SANTA CRUZ ... THE REAL DEALS!


Hello again!  We pick up where we left off cruising in Part 1.
Keep it flowing ... remember to connect and check Part 1 again @ http://www.trailspots.com/2015/08/hey-there-come-cruise-around-green.html
and  visit the Green Market, Santa Cruz, Facebook  page  @  
https://www.facebook.com/GreenMarketSantaCruz?fref=ts

This time we're stopping by some of the stalls, to view and sample the goodies!  

All kinds of natural treats and products can be found, you'll see ... it's a testimony to the variety of the market.
Natural and preserved fruits, fresh produce, drinks, bread and cakes, handicraft, clothing and accessories and much more can be found.   
Reminders to  make recycling a household habit are everywhere. This drive should definitely be applauded because it is needed world-wide   Awareness, example and practice is key to the recycling effort, which has a direct and positive impact on our environment.  

The 'Green Market' is so much more than a refreshing environment. It is a business model that focuses on the development of community and country. 
However, the natural environment in which it is cradled is no small thing.  What could be better than labors of love displayed in the natural wrapping of surrounding hills, mountains and forests, that weave themselves through the market place.  It is a beautiful and energizing space!   

There is nothing better than to see it in action ... a mobilized community catering to the needs and wants of locals and visitors from abroad.  A community that identifies and welcomes the contributions of each member who has a product or service to offer.

Get ready for a whirlwind of sights, stalls, treats and tips as the trail-spotters keep moving!







































We had a blast!  Come back soon!  

Visit the 'Green Market' FB page for more information and better yet, if you are here ... go there!   You will be inspired!

HEY THERE ... COME CRUISE AROUND 'THE GREEN MARKET' IN SANTA CRUZ, TRINIDAD!!


Our lovely and adventurous trail-spotters PT and Niki, recently visited the Green Market in Santa Cruz.  They captured so many great pics of the market's offerings.  Another visit is definitely planned for the near future.  

Santa Cruz is well known for the richness of its soil and the freshness and variety of its produce.   Its nestled location in the foothills of the Northern Range in Trinidad is idyllic and most important of all, the resourcefulness of the people in the community is nothing short of inspirational.
   
A leisurely visit to the market will quickly reveal the socio-economic and cultural mission that is manifested in the ambiance of the three-quarter acre natural space dedicated to the market place.   The market literally buzzes with wellness and a humble pride in its ability to embrace the " ... interconnectedness of all life ...".
Read a little about the community's mission:  
We are equally committed to building a community of eco-conscious consumers who will help us advocate for healthy eating and life choices as well as environmental protection and preservation (and) ... are committed to gentle demonstration–based education about the inter-connectedness of all life so that in due course, the values of respect, cooperation, diligence and caring empathy will become normative for our community.

One visit will convey the message that the market is achieving this mission; one that will hopefully be replicated in greater numbers throughout Trinidad and Tobago.  
'Back to the land' is not a cliche.  It is a call to create a smoother path to entrepreneurship in communities, where the availability of land/natural resources, human resources (technical knowledge and skills, experience and commitment) are keys to a better quality of life for all.  

You can increase your understanding of this community's dedication to healthy eating and living, craftsmanship, various other rewarding community efforts and general well-being, by visiting their Facebook page  @ https://www.facebook.com/GreenMarketSantaCruz?fref=ts

Website and blog access can be had from this page as well.   
We also thank the admins. at 'Green Market Santa Cruz',  for their permission to post about this laudable venture on Trail Spots(T-Spots!)  

Now, what did our spotters, PT and Niki, see and capture for you to enjoy, pic by pic?
Here goes ...!

QUICK PICS FROM A TEAM-BUILDING LIME AT CLIFTON HILL, T'DAD


Team-building time is time well-spent.  Here are a few quick pics from a recent session at Clifton Hill Beach, Point Fortin, Trinidad.

The exchanges were refreshing; the sea bath was great; the sunset sky was stunning ... then the sinking sun sat on the horizon!  Even the flames of the oil refinery in the distance, could not out-do that sky high ball of fire ...  Perfect ending!

Enjoy some awesome quick pics from a team-building lime, as sunset closed in on Clifton Hill Beach.  We love sunsets!

By the way, think about choosing the great outdoors for your next team-building session.  It's the perfect place for generating energy, inspiration and motivation ...  

Be sure to pay a visit to an extended version of this post  
on the 'Wellness' blog  @  http://spatrail.blogspot.com/2015/08/team-building-into-wellness-at-clifton.html.  
After all, team-building is certainly also about wellness!  

Enjoy the sunset, trail-spotters!
