A PLEA to clean the fields and a plan to clean up a house.

These are two topics of this week’s Heather-Lynn Habitat.

We focus on the recently concluded Barbados National Agricultural Conference 2015 and the problems facing cassava.

In addition, there is a plan to put a new face on the home of the island’s first Premier and National Hero the Right Excellent Sir Grantley Adams.

But the ancestral home of the late prime minister Tom Adams is looking a little worse for wear.

However, there are plans for afoot to restore it to the splendour of the days when Sir Grantley and Lady Adams lived in its 1854-constructed Palladian-style walls.
