Our Work in Ghana

At a Glance

  • We established our presence in Ghana in late 2022 and began working with farmers in November 2023.
  • We currently train smallholder farmers on sustainable vegetable production techniques in the Bono, Bono East, and Ahafo regions.
  • At our learning farm in Sunyani Abesim, we showcase effective cultivation methods, while also engaging in action research on green manure options.
