THE North Agriculture Show will be different this year as it includes various programs aimed at economically empowering communities.
Principal agricultural officer Northern John Cox said one of the programs would be teaching people how to make use of a whole coconut.
"We have the Whole Nut Processing Centre on Taveuni but we will bring it closer to the people at the show," he said.
"There are a lot of coconut trees in our villages and even back yards and people don't realise how much money these coconut plants contain.
"And the interesting thing about it is that we can use all parts of a coconut plant like making brooms, fans, decorations, earrings, soaps, virgin coconut oil, ordinary oil and many more."
Farmers from as far as Bua and Taveuni will be part of the show that begins at Subrail Park on Wednesday.
