Before the pandemic, Christal Beeko from Ghana had built a career in public relations and event planning. When the pandemic struck, she found herself out of the job, with a baby on the way. She quickly learned from the internet how to turn her flower garden into a vegetable garden.
Soon, it flourished into a business and now #Farming101 is a family experience and source of food/income for many families in Ghana. Her story of resilience reflects many Africans who saw and took opportunities in adverse situations.
