  • Description

    Description

    We are a dynamic, forward-thinking social enterprise engaging in Sustainable Agriculture Production at our 12-acre farm-base in Agou, Togo.

    We produce and deliver high-quality organic fruits, vegetables and herbs from our farm straight to your doorstep.

    The profits from our farm sales, supplemented by online fundraising, are then reinvested into vocational training and scholarships for low income women and youths.

    We offer several volunteer opportunities where you can visit us at our farm and learn more about our sustainable farming techniques.

    Our founder is a former student of the British School of Lomé, an Obama Leader and writer for Future Africa Forum.
