Shortly after finishing the foundation of the oil palm mill we covered the whole space with a nice step wise roof Just look how beautiful this mill is! Now we are only waiting for the land to be electrified by the national grid before we can start producing a sustainable palm oil (capacity: 1'000 - 3'000 liters of oil per DAY!)
Think about it: just the weigh of the cement alone that we used to build the mill is more than 10 tons!!!!
And who came to check the progress? Can you guess? No way! The Swiss Ambassador in Ghana together with his family visited our place to see how we are progressing (the Swiss embassy gave us a grant for the project )
Bio gas plant
Right beside the palm oil mill we have built a bio gas plant, which will treat the waste coming from the mill and produce bio gas to be used for cooking or as a liquid fertilizer for our agriculture needs
Organic Farm Certificate
The biggest highlight of this new year - we have received an organic certification from the PGS (Participatory Guarantee System) label And this is already in our first session!!
Educating the community - spreading the knowledge so needed
Under the name "Food Systems Caravan Dissemination Tour 2020" we successfully completed a tour through 3 regions: central, western-north, and western parts of Ghana. During the tour we showed educational videos about sustainable and organic agriculture in different farming communities and senior high schools. Result? More than 200 farmers and 100 students were inspired by the film and could ask us questions directly.
Thanks to the SNF for funding this project
And in a beautiful place like Busua we can always replenish our energy and relax after a hard week. Greetings from Ghana
