We are thrilled to provide a glimpse of ongoing endeavors in Sierra Leone, where the Njala University Living Lab (NUSL) is dedicated to promoting sustainable agriculture and improving local food security. NUSL shows its hydroponics system in action, and highlight their diligent attention to fine-tuning the fertilizer mix to ensure optimal plant growth. The LL hilights that their tomatoes are ripening beautifully, and they anticipate a successful harvest in just two short weeks. Tomatoes are a precious commodity in Sierra Leone, and the Njala University Living Lab is committed to contributing to their availability and affordability.
Furthermore, the LL is dedicating efforts to extend beyond traditional farming methods. The Njala University Living Lab is also gearing up for the launch of their insect unit, where Black Soldier Fly (BSF) larvae will play a crucial role in transforming organic waste into valuable resources. With these developments, the LL is taking significant steps towards creating a circular and sustainable agricultural system.
