The Agriculture and Rural Development department's Antoine Ravo said the workshop is the first of its kind and involved experts from the Pacific Community teaching new techniques on growing seasonal crops throughout the whole year.

Mr Ravo said the workshop would contribute to the government's food security policy and help Vanuatu offer fresh produce year round.
