Custom T-Shirts JA encouraging entrepreneurship in Blue Mountains with t-shirt design and printing class.
Big up to Christoff Johnson of Custom T-Shirts JA for joining us in the mountains to share his trade. Christoff taught a t-shirt screen printing class this past Saturday at the BMP Community Center and we will be working closely with him in the future to get a screen printing business up and running. Christoff is going to be teaching basic graphic design, the screen printing process and how to successfully run a t-shirt business. This project is part of our push for greater economic development and sustainable tourism programs after the Blue Mountains were named the first UNESCO World Heritage Site in Jamaica. Thanks again Christoff and Custom T-Shirts JA, we are excited to be working with you!
Big up to the team from Inamikart Studio in Kingston that donated time, paint, materials and traveled into the mountains to completely revitalize the Blue Mountain Project's library and computer lab.
Inamikart Studio will also be donating their time to design and paint a new mural at Minto Primary School.
While there are some serious exaggerations on the social contract between the Jamaican government and Blue Mountain coffee farmers, this short documentary is still well worth a watch. Be sure to catch one of the Blue Mountain Project's host moms discussing quality control starting at 3:37/8:17. Debbie is one of our volunteers' favorite hosts and one of the best cooks in the mountains.
