Greenhouse (GH) Farming has been identified as the only panacea to growing high valued vegetables such as Tomato and Capsicum in the Tropics in the face of adverse weather condition. It ensures food security through off-season production and provide job opportunity for young people. Despite the huge opportunity presented by this technology, many young people cannot get started mainly because of knowledge-skill gap. My idea/solution is to fill these knowledge-skill gap by producing GH Manuals that will be distributed to 100 young people in my area. It will help them build low-cost GH.
