      We had an interesting message the other day from the Caribbean
      office of the Foreign Office of the british
      gov. A chap there is organizing a conference called
      "Organic diversification" aiming to link producers in the
      West Indies with niche markets in the organic sector in the UK.
      The person organizing it was called Nigel Dickinson
      and can be reached on +44 207 270 2608/2472

      there is certainly a growing market for unusual plant out there
      its just a matter of finding it.

      Good luck
