Our experiences and our stories
| Mr. Swaran’s Glastonbury visit
Mr Thangavel's son Swaran Thangavel, who is very keen to promote the
Date Palm cultivation in the region visited the laboratory which produces the plants. It is situated in England, in the historical city of Glastonbury.
He visited the laboratory along with his wife and daughter. During his visit the staff at the laboratory showed him the production center, hardening unit and the whole process up to the export. In England they can not grow Dates but they produce the tissue culture Date plants and export all around the world.
For Swaran it was an unique opportunity and experience to see and have meetings with the staff. The staff were also amazed to see a farmer who is growing their plants. They appreciated his visit and gave lot of useful information on
Date Palm cultivation.
Thanks to Mr Paul Winter our good friend who made it possible. He took the appointment from the laboratory and provide accommodation in his house for Swaran's family. A very big Thank you to Mr Paul Winter from
