Back to Ghana!
One of the most worrying issues that I had to face in my recent trip to Ghana was the rising cost of shea production. The price of a sack of shea nuts had risen 60% since August this year.
At the same time as Canada was experiencing the coldest November in ages I had the opportunity to visit Ghana to meet the shea producers and basket weavers in the northern part of the country. Ghana is no stranger to me - I visited the country for the first time already 24 years ago as a young volunteer in tree plantation.
