You can solve food shortage locally
If you Grow Your Food today.
The country is on the brink of a food crisis and we believe that with Nigerians growing our local foods at home, will create a sustainable buffer.
Studies have shown that diet can be improved through agriculture so we want to do this by getting people to start this revolution right in their homes.
Influence young people to see agriculture in a new light and also to get Nigerians eating fresher and healthier vegetables that they grow in their homes.
