Listen to article

Jamasi (Ash), Oct 30, GNA - Work has started on a two-hectare citrus and black pepper farm project being jointly undertaken by the Jamasi prince of Peace, Tabre and Dawu branches of the Presbyterian Church at Dawu in the Afigya/Sekyere district of Ashanti. Mr Kwadwo Adu, chairman of the project committee, who disclosed this to the Ghana News Agency at Jamasi on Friday, said Tabre and Dawu provided the land while Jamasi is also responsible for the financial aspect of it.

Mr Adu said they were starting with 120 citrus seedlings at a cost of 720,000 cedis and hoped the plantation would be expanded a year's time.

He gave the assurance that whatever proceeds realized from the project will be used to develop the three sister churches and appealed to members to help both materially or financially for the project to succeed.
