A three-day cooperative workshop has ended in Kon Town Todee District, rural Montserrado County with road and bridges remaining a major challenge to the transport of products of local farmers in the area.
The workshop brought together over fifty farmers from various Towns and Villages within Todee District to build up their capacity on cocoa and vegetables farming in the District and its surroundings and Liberia at large.
Speaking to Our Todee District Correspondent over the weekend, two of the facilitators disclosed that the workshop is intended to train members of the cooperative called Dehkegal in cocoa and vegetable planning in rural Montserrado County to help enhance rural dwellers to be self-sufficient in food production.
Also speaking, Montserrado County development Superintendent David Johnson and his co-workers, described the workshop as a milestone for farmers who have taken the initiative to buttress Government efforts in the Country.
Johnson and the Township Commissioner Nathaniel Sackie along with the chairman who is the Clan Chief of Mei Clan, John Sefee, added that within two years time Todee District will be able to supply Montserrado County with cocoa and vegetables on the market, but this cannot be done when farmers across the Country are not empowered financially.
