World Heritage Site

Last week we posted an article, which announced the Blue and John Crow Mountains were recently inscribed into the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s (UNESCO) “World Heritage List”. A World Heritage Site is a place that is listed by UNESCO as being of special cultural or physical significance.

The Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park spans sections of the parishes of St. Andrew, St. Thomas and Portland. Being that Restoration Village Farm is located in the foothills of the John Crow mountains we believe it is a well-deserved honor, as we take in the gorgeous views of the Blue and John Crow Mountains everyday.

After viewing various pictures (see below) of the breathtaking views we have at Restoration Village Farm it’s clear to see why the Blue and John Crow Mountains were added to the List after a unanimous decision from a 21-member committee.
