#JamaicaGleaner #AugustTown #AfricanGardens #Farming MAY 25, 2023: Although Dorothy Price-Maitland was not born in the community of August Town in St Andrew, she relocated there in the late 1990s with the objective of improving the quality of life for the locals, especially younger generations. When Price-Maitland, affectionately referred to as ‘Momma D,’ first moved into the neighbourhood, there were little to no uplifting and positive programmes underway. As a result, she had set out on a mission of transformation – recognising the need for community enrichment initiatives in the area.
