    • Kwashie Darkudzi says:

      Hi Sir,
      Vermiculture is simply just earthworm farming, you know earthworm degrades wastes such as kitchen waste, farm residues and other agro waste. the earthworm cast is a multi million dollars business in the world for export and all that you need is live earthworm and huge waste

    There are a number of farmers in the Adanse South (New Edubiase) area of Ashanti Region of Ghana who have gone into cultivation of Allanblackia since 2007. They were encouraged by Forestry Research Institute of Ghana (FORIG) and other partners to go into the nursery and cultivation and preservation of Allanblackia trees. Their trees have started bearing fruits. Their problem now is they do not have market for the crop. Please, how can your outfit help these farmers to get market for their Allanblackia seeds, for them to get income and not lose hope of going into such useful livelihood project?
    I am prepared to give you details of their production levels after getting your first feedback. Thanks

    • Kwashie Darkudzi says:

      Dear Thomas,
      we can help you in two ways first teach you how to add value to the produce and secondly export it for.
      But adding value would bring us more profits than exporting it raw
      Get back to me with the acrage size, number of farmers involved and number of women involved too
      Regards
      Kwashie
