Trax Ghana staff carried out composting training for students and teachers of Kavli scholarship schools; St. Luke, Beo-Tankoo and TI Ahmadiyya Junior High Schools in the Bongo district of the Upper East region.
By creating own compost and then using it during planting, households are able to return much-needed nutrients to their fields. This enriches the soil and results in organic food production. All of the locally available materials for composting such as ash, fresh and dried grasses were supplied by students while animal waste, soil, and water came from the Kavli farm where the training was conducted. Participants were taken through techniques of stacking and combining of materials.
