The New Face of Agriculture on St. Croix
Commissioner Positive Terrance Nelson is the Commissioner of Agriculture for the US Virgin Islands. He brings his leadership skills to this department stemming from his many years of experience as a Senator with the VI Legislature in the territory.
- The US territory imports a whopping 97% of their food so one of his main goals is to make the islands more food sovereign. The department established many programs available to the big farmers as well as the backyard farmers which include land prep, land management, and even hemp farming.
