Location Of Green Grocers Causing Concern

Many Papua New Guineans live off the land. It has and will always be an integral part of their livelihood.

In Port Moresby, a group of settlers from Goroka are turning barren lands into cash.

 

Not only that, they are supplying the city with fresh produce.

 

It’s six in the morning and Somare Crescent is seeing its first rush hour traffic. But opposite, on the roadside, a group of settlers are busy tending to their plot.

 

With the dry spell setting in, they are doing all they can to ensure their crops withstand the changing weather patterns.

 

John Moiawe and Asio Uleso, like many of their other fellows, have toiled the land for survival.

 

They have turned this part of the city into a grocer’s mecca, supplying the city with fresh produce.

 

But calls from city authorities to remove their makeshift stalls have left them in a dilemma.

 

They say the public markets are crowded and with the increase in petty crimes, they are providing a convenient option for their customers.
