  1. “MyFarmbase Africa is changing lives, changing narratives, and killing the stereotypic notion of non-attractiveness of agriculture to youths. I learnt how I can achieve SDGs in my farm by modifying my system of production, and increasing productivity while maintaining a safe environment” – Alomaja Adesewa
  2. “I learnt about best practices in climate smart farming including technological innovation available for all-year round urban farming” – Ekea Chidi-Ikpo
  3. “The training was a real eye-opener for me because I learned from experts that the business I thought required huge capital, only required a small capital to start, then grow big. I also learnt how to maximise yield and profit from a small plot of land” – Nnenna Juliet.
