Urban Gardening in Accra?! Coming Soon! Get Involved Now!

The Goethe-Institut Ghana will be hosting a four day ecological urban initiative project: URBAN GARDEN IN ACCRA?!. The programme spans from 16th of August to 19th of August 2016. Special project resource person will be Marco Clausen, the co-founder of the Berlin-based initiative: Prinzessinnengarten.
