This is Ogoo Farm, it is very close to the national capital, Freetown. Here it is produced some of the food that feeds the capital. Local farms are a solution for the food scarcity in the country. The food production in Sierra Leone is still on the low, the government still need to import most of the food, including rice. Climate change affects the food production and developing countries are the most affected.
