The KalaBash Festival 2023 in Aburi was our first GhanaFam event. We really enjoyed the two days with our vendors, the festival visitors and the panel guests. And it was the talk about “Organic Food in Ghana” that excited us the most.
Although it took us a lot of time and effort, we finally are now able to publish the recordings of the talk online and make it accessible to a wide audience.
It is our wish that people are informed about healthy nutrition and the meaning of sustainable living. Everyone should be able to make their own decisions, take responsibility and live self-determined. Therefore, we have made it our mission as an organisation to create platforms like the KalaBash Festival to disseminate this information and to connect people working in these fields.
We have invited four of the leaders of the organic food movement in Ghana to our talk. We discussed about the term “organic” and how to identify organic food. We also spoke about the importance of organic food and organic farming for our health and the environment. Finally, there are suggestions on how to eat more organic food oneself.
These are our experts:
- Constant Selasie Akwensi, Responsible for international public relations at the Ghana Permaculture Institute
- Dr. Florence Teiko Vanderpuye, CEO of Rosh Pinnah Ventures and Representative of PGS Ghana (the Participatory Guarantee System, which is a guiding document for organic production in Ghana)
- Ayingayure Evans Daniel, CEO of CITI Farming
In addition our vendor Ground Up Ghana joined the panelist, represented by Carly (Nana Yaa) Edwards.
