A businesswoman, Naa Adobea Torkornoo, has come up with an innovative way to teach children the art of gardening and farming.
Naa Adobea started the eco-friendly enterprise called Farmer Torks Greeneries in 2013, and has since been helping families, communities and organisations to set up gardens with a special focus on children.
Farmer Torks Greeneries not only teaches children the gist about farming and gardening, but it also helps save the earth and providing healthy feeding options to interested people.
In her own words, "We create an avenue for an outdoor hobby, as well as a bonding opportunity for friends and loved ones to enjoy gardening together to enhance healthy-eating."
Naa's business provides consultation services and training to anyone with an interest in farming or gardening while providing healthy seeds, seedlings and other materials needed to start gardens even in the smallest of spaces.
"With a team of trained and experienced staff, we make conscientious efforts in ensuring that all our clients get the best service needed to make your gardening experience a memorable one," Naa notes.
With the advent of the Covid-19 outbreak, Naa Adobea's enterprise has shifted focus to helping families grow foodstuffs at home to fence them against price hikes and unhealthy options.
Via their online platforms, Farmertorksonline.com and also Myafriquemart.com, the group has been taking orders and safely delivering vegetable seedlings, assorted peppers, tomatoes, lettuce, coriander, garden eggs among other products.
