The Terrible Cost of Pesticide Misuse in Ghana
Our new Ghana project is investigating the misuse of pesticides and training farmers how to avoid poisoning themselves and the environment. Sadly, we are too late for one of the farmer leaders seen here at a Farmer Field School in Nyagbo (Volta Region) examining a mole cricket, once considered a local delicacy. He passed away after spraying his fields. See What's New?
We have also provided a two page flier
which summarises our main interests, concerns and achievements.
Help us light a candle, as Ghandi advised, rather than curse the darkness.
