Individuals interested in a truly unique community tourism opportunity will have the chance to relax and be one with nature. Ahh... Ras Natango Garden and Gallery which utilizes ecotourism to incorporate all aspects of the community, provides employment for community members who are used as tour guides, security guards, and craft makers through the development of a cottage industry within the community. The Community school, Buckingham All Age has also been benefiting from this venture as proceeds from the daily tours are donated to the school.
“Jamaica has more to offer than the sea and sun. Being on vacation should be a memorable, pleasant and cultural experience and it is with this in mind that Ahhh…Ras Natango Gallery and Garden was created.” Said Owner of Ahh…Ras Natango Gallery and Garden, Ian Williams. He further elaborated by saying “providing employment for members of our community instills a sense of pride in our culture through the arts and crafts which are made on property and provide authentic Jamaican ‘one of a kind’ gifts for guests”.
Ahh…Ras Natango Garden and Gallery is the most comprehensive of its kind in Jamaica. The gallery and garden provide an alternative for persons who are environmentalists, nature lovers, birders or just someone looking to meet Jamaicans in their homes and exchange cultures. The gift shop features authentic Jamaican art and craft, while the garden is a thoughtful showcase of tropical flora and stone sculptures with spectacular views of the city.
An Upbeat Myrtle Dwyer, Director with responsibility for Sales and Marketing at Glamour Destination Management noted that “In keeping with our 25th anniversary celebrations, this venture gave us the perfect opportunity to give back to the community by utilizing eco-tourism as an effective tool for enhancing the growth of communities, especially in promoting and supporting efforts in leading sustainable change in the global tourism and travel industry.”
Located in the quaint yet friendly and safe community of Kempshot Montego Bay, Ahhh...Ras Natango Gallery & Garden has the most breathtaking view.
