Head of Academics
Ghana Institute of Organic Farming
Olawumi Benedict is Nigerian by origin, but a resident of Ghana. In 2009, she took a post-graduate certificate course in Organic Agriculture, in an exchange program between University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Ogun State Nigeria and Coventry University, United Kingdom which birthed the concern of organic farming in her. After that, she worked with projects in Nigeria before leaving for Ghana. In 2013, she relocated to Ghana and now works with the Ghana Institute of Organic Farming as the Head of Academics. This has fueled her passion and keen interest in Organic, Permaculture and Sustainable Agriculture so much that she is working to start Center for Sustainable Development upon her return to Ghana after she completes the 8-Month Program at Ecology Action.
