Planted the first seed for Future of Design Ghana’s Bioswale Demonstration Unit


Last week, I planted the first seed for Future of Design Ghana’s bioswale demonstration unit at the Efua Sutherland Children’s Park. I am particularly excited about the different levels of this project, taking the concept of climate change, breaking it down into tangible attainable goals, and developing specific projects that involve and engage the youth to design and maintain systems such as the bioswales for flood mitigation. For the demonstration, I planted the Amankwatia rice which is expected to grow to approximately 1.3m tall in 120-125 days. I commit to ensuring its replication in other parts of the constituency. The project is also expected to engage the youth in the constituency to help in its maintenance, get money in their pockets, and reengage professionally with society
