Anguilla Salt Picking Cultural Experience

September 2, 2018, 7:00 am - 8:30 am

Anguilla Activities Calendar

Legend has it, if we pick the salt from Sandy Ground pond, rain will come! Well, Anguilla has not received substantial rain for months and, there is an abundance of salt glistening in the pond. Let’s help to make it rain!

The salt industry was a strong proponent of Anguilla’s economic growth. However, the practice of salt picking has been disbanded and many locals are unaware of the procedure and cultural/historical importance of this practice.

For this reason, we invite you to join us for an Anguilla Salt Picking Cultural Experience on Sunday September 2nd, 2018 at 7am in Sandy Ground.

We will meet at Pump House and proceed into the pond. You will need:

  • water boats/pair of shoes you’re not afraid to get wet
  • a container/bucket for salt
  • gloves (optional)

Let’s see the legend is true or not! Contact us on Facebook Messenger or call 1(264)582-5859 for further information.
