Brief History of African Labor in Bermuda and Lily Harvest:

Africans have been a part of the Bermudian workforce since the early days of the colony. In the 17th century, enslaved Africans were brought to Bermuda to work in the fields, on the docks, and in the homes of the wealthy. After slavery was abolished in 1834, many freed Africans continued to work in agriculture, including the lily harvest.

Lily buds are a popular flower in Bermuda, and they are used to make perfume, cosmetics, and other products. The lily harvest is a major economic activity in Bermuda, and it provides jobs for many people, including both Bermudians and immigrants.

The lily harvest is a seasonal activity, and it takes place from late spring to early summer. The flowers are picked by hand, and they are then processed and shipped to markets around the world. The lily harvest is a demanding job, but it is also a source of pride for many Bermudians.

The lily harvest is a reminder of the important role that Africans have played in the development of Bermuda. The labor of African workers has helped to shape the island's economy and culture, and it continues to be an important part of Bermudian life today.
