The Bermuda Environmental Sustainability Taskforce [BEST] and Bermuda College are getting set to hold the third presentation in their series of Eco Lunch & Learns on Thursday, November 29, with Amaris Wharton to speak at the event.

A spokesperson said, “Amaris Wharton, a laboratory technician in the Plant Protection Department at the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, will be presenting on ‘The State of Bermuda’s Food Security’. Amaris will explain what food security is and how it pertains to Bermuda and its population.

“Amaris graduated from Western University in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts degree specializing in Geography. She then pursued her Master’s degree and graduated from the University of Edinburgh with a Master’s of Science in Environmental Protection and Management.”

Kim Smith, Executive Director at BEST, said, ‘We are encouraged to have Amaris Wharton working in the environmental arena in Bermuda and presenting for us on a critically important topic for Bermuda. It is concerning to BEST that there is no longer enough agricultural land to sustain our population. The issue of Bermuda’s food security was the subject of Amaris’ Master’s thesis.”
