  • Description

    Description

    I am a farmer,social worker and a teacher.
    My passion in life is to use what is around me well to support myself and family.
    Apart from my job,I love to farm,and always practice different kind of activities in farm to build agric system and crops.I also love to teach young people who are afraid of farming and cultivating the land.
    Apart from that crop farming I rear animals like goats,sheeps,pigs and chicken.
    Some of the crops I planted include: ginger,yam,cassava,plantain and mangoes.
    The most important part of the ecological and sustainable farm is that,its organic and promote ecosystem and environment.
    Sometime students from different level of education learn in my site and practice different agricultural practices.
    It is not on a very large scale,its subsistence but many varieties of crops.
    I need so many help,and it shall be helpful if you support me with ideas,energy and minds to make my farm a good harvest.
    Its a place of making family,learning and serving our ecosystem.

    Do you have a skills of making house or pen for poultry birds?
    Pigs, goats and sheeps?
    We need you on board!!
    Also we need Ecocamp builders and camp houses.
