Angel Adelaja co-founded WE FARM, an agricultural NGO that focuses on collectively ensuring a better future for Africa through sustainable agriculture.
Her farms are built inside shipping containers in the city of Abuja, making them the first in containerized farming in Africa. Angel and her team of young women, uses hydroponics to grow leafy greens and luxury salads with just nutrient infused water and LED lights.
She told BBC
Because of hydroponic farming, we are able to grow a variety of products that are not normally comfortable growing in Nigeria and we grow them all year round whether its rainy season or dry season. If our average age of a farmer in Nigeria is 60, then we need to do something. We need to get young people interested in Agriculture. We need to make agriculture cool and fun.
