About me: GreenBB



Thank you for visiting GoGrow: Barbados my blog about Kitchen Gardening here in sunny (and sometimes rainy) Barbados.


I have enjoyed gardening for as long as I can remember, when I was a child I remember gardening with my Grandfather in his “Victory” Garden in North East Philadelphia. For a short time, while living in NYC, I had a small garden plot in the Green Oasis Community Garden. Now that I am in Barbados, with plenty of sun and plenty of rain, I’m at it again.


I started this blog for several reasons: the main one being a desire to connect with other gardeners here in Barbados and around the world that share the same love for gardening that I do. The second reason is to bring the cultural and socio-economic role that Kitchen Gardening played in Barbados back to the forefront. A quick search on Google using the term “Kitchen Gardening” demonstrates that people all over the world at all levels of society are again embracing steps toward self-sufficiency.


I welcome all comments and input, and please visit often.






  1. Hi,
    Was so pleased to find your site. I am just beginning to look into organic kitchen gardening so I’ve found you at just the right time. I agree with your observations about an upsurge in the relevance of kitchen gardens from a social point of view.
    Welcome to the Caribbean blogging community, there are not that many of us, but we are growing by the day. Another good one to visit is Nicole at The Caribbean Garden. Her link is up on my site. I’ll add you to my lists of links as well.

  2. I, too, am glad to find your blog – thanks to zooms. I am just to start doing some tropical gardening in Puerto Rico and need to read about others’ experiences

  3. 🙂
