About

ENGLISH VERSION
My farm is located in the region of the great plateau on Danyi. It is a tourist area with a mild climate and lush vegetation. It is also the region of peaks, chuttes and waterfalls. On my farm I cultivate yam, manioc, corn, banana, beans, garden vegetables like local hot pepper, European pepper, lettuce, cabbage, carrots, eggplant, zucchini or green beans, and fruit trees like avocado, mango and papaya and palm trees - in short, most of what can be found on a tropical farm.
Concerning animals, I keep chicken, goats, sheep, aulacodes (local type of a rodent) and do beekeeping. Moreover, I have three dogs.
Apart from that, I grow the medicinal plant Moringa well known in the country and in Africa and Artemisia. I use animal droppings and mucuna plants to fertilize the soil before planting.
My area covers 15 hectares crossed by a small creek. We live in families with children in the community of the village. The farm is located 2 km from our house. There is also a farm house out of the village next to the fields. We are friendly and always happy to receive woofers - welcome!
Due to cold and rainy weather during rain season that prevents one from doing most kinds of work in the field, I cannot receive wwoofers in July and August.
Please make sure to include the following in your baggage:
- a pullover and long trousers for the evenings, especially during rain season
- clothes suitable for working on the farm, including long sleeve and long trousers, gloves and a hat
- a sleeping bag as cover for the bed
- a flashlight
Directions: Departing from Lomé, take a taxi to Kpalime (about 2h) and change to another taxi there headed for Elavagnon (via Adeta, Danyi Apeyeme). Elavagnon itself is a village in the prefecture of Danyi of which Apeyeme is the capital. Arrived in Elavagnon, ask to be dropped off at the water tank. Using collective taxis shared with other passengers, calculate 2000 FCFA Lomé-Kpalime and Kpalime-Elavanyo each and a total of 5h. Alternatively, contact me in advance to arrange for direct travel from Lome.
Please note: Despite this description being in English, the languages spoken here are French and Ewe, and basic English only. At least basic French is therefore deeply appreciated;).

VERSION FRANCAISE
Ma ferme est située dans la région du Grand Plateau de Danyi. C'est une région touristique avec un climat modéré et une végétation luxuriante, en plus bien connue pour ses montagnes et cascades. Les fruits et légumes cultivés dans ma ferme sont l'igname, le manioc, le maïs, la banane, les haricots, le piment locale, le poivron européen, la laitue, les choux, les carottes, l'aubergine, les courgettes et les haricots verts ; en plus les fruitiers comme l'avocatier, le manguier, la papaye et les palmiers – en bref, la plupart de ce qu'on peut rencontrer dans une ferme dans une région tropicale.
Concernant les animaux, j'élève les poules, les chèvres, les moutons, des aulacodes (un rangeur locale) et des abeilles. Et puis trois chiens font partie de la maison.

En dehors de cela, je cultive le Moringa, une plante médicinale bien connue dans le pays et dans toute l'Afrique, ainsi que l'Artémisia. J'utilise les déchets des animaux et la plante de mucuna pour fertiliser le sol avant de planter.

Mon terrain atteint 15 hectares et est traversé par une petite rivière. Nous vivons en famille avec les enfants, dans la communauté du village. Les champs se trouvent à 2km de la maison. Il y a aussi une ferme auprès des champs. Nous sommes accueillants et nous nous réjouissons toujours de recevoir des wwoofers – soyez les bienvenus !

En juillet et août, à cause du temps froid et les pluies intenses de la saison des pluies qui empêchent la plupart des travaux champêtres, je ne peux pas recevoir les wwoofers.

S'il vous plaît, prenez soin d'inclure ceci dans vos bagages:
- un pull-over et un pantalon pour les soirées, surtout pendant la saison des pluies
- vêtements appropriés aux travaux champêtres avec manches longues et un pantalon, des gants et un chapeau
- un sac de couchage
- une lampe de poche
Directions: Partant de Lomé, prendre un taxi pour Kpalimé (environ 2h) et changer un autre taxi vers Elavagnon (via Adeta, Danyi Apéyémé). Elavagnon lui-même est un village dans la préfecture de Danyi dont Apéyémé est la capitale. Arrivé à Elavagnon, demandez à descendre au château d'eau. Si vous prenez des taxis collectifs partagés avec d'autres passagers, compter 2000 FCFA Lomé-Kpalimé et 2000 FCFA Kpalimé-Elavanyo et un total de 5 heures. Ou bien, contactez-moi en avant pour arranger un trajet direct de Lomé.
