BEHIND THE SHOT: Coral Bay Agricultural Center

 (Kathryn Wagner)

I stopped in to the Coral Bay agricultural center this week and wanted to see what they were all about. Coral Bay is the smaller of the two towns on St. John, where a slow pace of life is paramount to many residents. The government run resource that is the Agricultural center is being utilized as class space and a garden. St John could really benefit from more of this as land is limited and thus farming cost prohibitive. I love the tropical landscape growing in abundance, and the bright colors of the agricultural center made for an interesting subject to photograph.
