A Nice Green Leaf: Fair Trade gardening


The Fair Trade campaign gets better every year at publicising their promotional fortnight, which this year runs from 25 Feb to 9 March. In a really imaginative move, Eden and Fair Trade are bringing two Ghanaian chocolate growers to Cornwall, Kojo Aduhene and Paul Ayepah, who'll be giving talks and demonstrations in the Rainforest Biome.  

I really hope this event is being recorded for TV. What will the Ghanaians make of the Eden project? And what will the Cornish make of the chocolate growers? It's a fantastically direct way of reminding us that our food is always grown by other human beings. And that we should all be more aware of the implications of that simple thought.
