Plenty Bulletin, Fall 1982: Plenty’s biggest endeavor of all is soon to begin: our own Caribbean Plan. The Fri is being rebuilt in Amsterdam with the help of two Plenty volunteers, and it is expected to sail across the Atlantic in October (1982). We’ve been invited to the island nations of Dominica, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Antigua, and Haiti. These are among the poorest countries in our hemisphere, yet all, except Haiti, are small enough (average size: 15 miles by 30 miles, population: 80,000-100,000) that we can make a difference. In January we’ll send technicians and equipment on the Fri for demonstrations and projects in appropriate technology, agriculture, health care, and nutrition.
