People around the Falelauniu area gathered to witness the various displays of agricultural produce ranging from a variety of root crops, vegetables, fruits as well as ornamental plants. Pastor Tavita Kapeli and farmers from his congregation successfully coordinated and organized the Talomua for Falelauniu-tai.

Pastor Tavita spoke on behalf of the organizing committee to thank the Government for their continued support through the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. He stated that they will continue to develop their farms to support their community.

The Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries, Honourable La’aulialemalietoa Leuatea Polataivao Fosi Schmidt congratulated Pastor Tavita and the community for putting together a successful event.

He assured them that the collaboration between the Government and the farmers of Falelauniu-tai will further benefit the community in terms of development.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries provided farming tools and equipment, seed and seedlings of various crops as part of their supporting role to village-led agriculture events.
