University of Ghana Students Tour Valley View University

Solomon Addai, the Director for Ecological Services, Sustainability and Farms at Valley View University, took the students through Valley View University’s developed Ecological Master Plan

Students from the School of Agriculture at the College of Basic and Applied Science of the University of Ghana have taken a familiarisation tour at the Ecological Systems at the Valley View University (VVU). The tour was to gain an understanding of how humans can possibly transform waste or by-products into useful resources.

Solomon Addai, the Director for Ecological Services, Sustainability and Farms at Valley View University, took the students through Valley View University’s developed Ecological Master Plan (EMP). He explained to the students that, VVU’s holistic ecological concept which allows for optimization of energy and waste has helped the Institution to develop in so many ways.

The students were taken through the creation of sustainable campus projects which have led to the formation of an interdisciplinary environment, with a common goal to develop, implement and evaluate sustainable methods of urban planning, building, sanitation and agriculture on all the campuses of VVU. And as part of the concept, there is an implementation of recycling and reuse of waste water, grey water, urine and organics as fertilizer and soil conditioner for farmlands at VVU.

 

The University of Ghana students were accompanied by Dr. Dora Neina, Environmental Soil Scientist and Dr. Daniel Etse Dodor, Lecturer, both from the Department of Soil Science at the College of Basic and Applied Science of the University of Ghana.
