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.
