The Adele villages are made up of subsistence farmers and by studying Permaculture the women will be expanding their agricultural practices, food capacity, and become a part of a global eco-farming Permaculture Network. 

 

Agriculture in the Adele villages like the rest of Africa is done predominately by women.  African women do 80% of the farming. Agriculture on the African continent makes up about 70% of the economic base.

 

The crops grown in the Adele Traditional Area of Ghana is Maize, Cassava,Yam, Cowpea and Groundnuts.....

The population that the Adele Women Association serve is 5 million; women are 2 million, children 3 million,  and men 1 million.

The communities they serve are; Dadiese, Korantan, Odumase, Kadhaidi, Tutukpeu and Ahodwo.

 

They left their training program in Permaculture with moringa seeds, cassava sticks,  black pepper, grape, mangoe seeds, and pawpaw.

 

They also learned how to prepare cosmetic products using Moringa! They have already started home gardens in the villages.

"Our pathway must be up through the soil,
up through swamps,
up through forests,
up through streams and rocks,
up through commerce, education, and religion!
In my opinion, we cannot begin at the top to build a house.  
If we try to do this, we shall reap in the end the fruits of our folly".

Booker T. Washington
