Staff from Broadspectrum Limited’s E-Agric Project teamed with the people of Jantong Daboashie, a farming village in the Central Gonja District of the Savannah Region, to embark on a tree-planting exercise to commemorate Green Ghana Day.
Broadspectrum personnel and community members planted 3,000 teak saplings and 50 ornamental plants along the road leading to the community, the primary school, the chief’s palace, and the CHPS compound on a 5-acre plot of ground. The corporation also provided the Chief and the inhabitants of the town with chairs and other amenities.
