Permaculture & Eco-Education Programs

The organization is based on a 24-acre land, where training is offered to local farmer groups in areas such as moringa production, mushroom cultivation, bamboo building, and honey production. After receiving training, the farmers who attend workshops are assisted in bringing their products to the market.

They also run a range of environmental programs focused on biogas production, eco-building, solar energy, and food gardens, and land management programs based on erosion control. In addition, the organization teaches school children about permaculture, earth care, and tree growing. The organization has been running these programs since 2004 and is working on expanding beyond Ghana.
