Join our Community Farming Project in Ghana is based in the Akuapem Hills, the most rural region of Ghana. The project is still in its early stages of development and consists of a small farm which volunteers are responsible for.

The farm produces oranges, plantains, papayas, carrots, onions and herbs and the work done on the farm includes animal care, growing crops, flower production, herb cultivation and land management. It is also home to rabbits, guinea pigs and geese.

Volunteers will also arrange for local schools to visit the farm in order to educate the children in the process of growing crops in a sustainable environment. They also learn how to take care of animals and how to identify seeds. These school trips will also give you a chance to pass on your newfound knowledge to the children and increase awareness of various conservation issues.

I taught the students the meaning of waste management and the three R’s (Reduce | Reuse | Recycle).  After that point, every time I saw them, I tested their knowledge of what I had taught them and gave them more information.  Allie Fetherston
