Over the past 9 years we’ve grown over 50 tons of fruits and vegetables on our small farm on the outskirts of Lagos. We started out blogging about farming before we started tilling the land, we set out to tell a compelling story that will convince everyone one who cared to listen that the agriculture industry is not only changing but is a key driver to the development of Africa. Along the way we have learnt a lot of lessons, we have had many highs and learnt from our lows as well. In the last 4 years we have transitioned from being a conventional farm to practicing organic and regenerative agriculture. We have taken these lessons and trained over a hundred secondary school students on the practice and business of agriculture, some of whom have gone on to study agriculture at the university level and some have also started their own gardens and farms. We have trained over a thousand farmers across Lagos on how to keep farm records and have participated in different workshops training aspiring farmers. During the pandemic we launched our edible garden in the heart of Lagos due to the high customer demand for herbs. We have surpassed our expectations and raised over 10,000 seedlings on a tiny plot of land and given our clients access to live saving herbs.
These values are inspired by people and companies we admire and they embody our culture, spirit and dedication to doing the right thing for our company, our stakeholder and our customers:
Do unto others what you will have them do unto you.
Have the courage to shape a better future.
Without courage we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can’t be kind, true, merciful, generous or honest – Maya Angelou.
We practice safe methods of food production that reduce environmental degradation and maintain the productivity of the land over time.
Together we can make a difference.
What we do, we do well.
Our mission is very simple. To make an impact and leave the world better than we found it.
To achieve this we will:
Teach the Next Generation of African Farmers how to farm Sustainably
Help create an Africa that is food secure
Help create a world with ZeroHunger
