See How Angel Adelaja Is Growing Plants With No Soil – And Little Water – In Shipping Containers

Published

on

Fresh Direct Nigeria

For better or worse, our world keeps evolving without our permission – and we keep scrambling to keep up, especially in the area of agriculture.

Sure, we’re producing more food than ever before, but our current model is unsustainable, and as the world’s population grows and climate change becomes more unforgiving, we will need a radical transformation to keep up.

A one-of-a-kind solution

This is where innovative new solutions like vertical farming – growing food in vertically stacked layers – and hydroponics – growing plants with no soil and little water – come into play.

 

Combining these two innovative solutions, Angel Adelaja has created a revolutionary stackable container farm, using shipping containers, that is the most affordable in the world – and just one container can do about an acre and a half of vegetable production.

Born out of the need to make urban farming accessible to everyone, Angel co-founded We Farm Africa, and founded Fresh Direct Produce and Agro-Allied Services, a social enterprise that has pioneered hydroponic agriculture in Nigeria.

Speaking with The Way Women Work about what inspired the containers, Angel said:

“When we started Fresh Direct, we realized that new technology could make the difference that African agriculture needed.

Unfortunately, we needed to import the technology and it was too expensive. So we decided to innovate and create our own technology from indigenous materials.”

Fresh Direct Nigeria has multiple active divisions, so they don’t just farm, they create low-tech affordable technologies, like the stackable container farm, to simplify agriculture in Nigeria – and eventually, the world.

Nigerian singer Davido has always cultivated a culture of sharing is caring in all aspects of his life.


The Nigerian star Davido shares his heart equally with three women: two baby mamas who gave birth to his daughters and his girlfriend Chioma.
And that is not enough. The musician has always been praised for always helping the people around him despite their status in the community.

Now, the 26-year-old father of two has caused a stir on Twitter after casually saying his watchman owns two houses and three cars.

Yes, as you struggle to at least get free rides on Mr sponsor’s car, Davido is busy elevating his employees.
It all started when a tweep named Obong Roviel shared his excitement over news that the musician was working with upcoming act, Lyta.

Obong praised Davido for always supporting everyone who approaches him either in terms of growing their music brand or elevating their businesses.
A proud and happy Davido then said on top of helping Lyta, he has made sure his watchman has cars and houses.

Scrolling through the comment section, nearly everyone agreed with Obong and echoed his sentiments.

Despite the singer being riddled with controversy in the past, he has managed to show he has a heart of gold.
