For this episode of PGAP, we travel (virtually) to equatorial western Africa to speak with Innocent Kelvin Coffie, youth leader and founder of EarthCare Permaculture Ghana. Kelvin takes us on a verbal tour of the property, the successes the property has had in up skilling new generations in food self-sufficiency, and some recent challenges that the property has endured through. Kelvin also gives some insight into how the permaculture movement is taking root in Ghana, some of the unique environmental and social challenges experienced in his country and how permaculture is one solution to solving these problems.

Host Michael Bayliss feels a deep connection with the African continent and the many great thinkers and amazing grassroots community movements that are making waves. PGAP has previously interviewed Kenyan resident Robert Wanalo in season 1 and Ugandan born Florence Blondel in Season 2. We highly recommend listening to those episodes.
PGAP has also not shied away from covering permaculture and regenerative farming. We have interviewed some big names like David Holmgren and Charles Massy. You may also be interested in our interview with Shane Simonsen, who grows unconventionally in subtropical Queensland, or Murray Gomm, who grows locally to PGAP in our new home town of Albany.
