The Story of the Locust

So back in January we introduced you to Ital Delroy Anthony. Ital is a very cool and very knowledgeable St. Johnian who makes music and native arts and crafts over by Salt Pond. We stopped by and chatted with him a few weeks ago about the locust. For those of you who live on island or visit the island, chances are you’ve seen these. Now here’s the story behind it:

  1. I love Ital. While visiting st John in Feb I bought some of his handmade gifts to bring home to my son. He spoke with me about the native plants. He is so knowledge and enjoys what he does and it shows in the handcrafted gifts he makes. Good to see you publish this article and the video was nice. Felt like I was back at salt pond. Keep up the good work

  2. We had the pleasure of meeting with this amazing gentleman while visiting Salt Pond in April. He had me taste a fruit which I believe he said had pudding in its name. I was a bit skeptical but trusted and I am so glad that I did as it was very good. My only regret is that we did not have more time to get to talk with him. Thank you so much for bringing a bit of Ital into our lives at home.

  3. We stopped by before spending the day at Salt Pond. Ital has some really cool stuff! Very friendly and happy to tell us about all of his work. Es, this is where we bought Jenni’s musical instrument.
