The Bono Region has taken proactive measures, as part of their preparations towards this year’s Green Ghana Day (GGD), to ensure that the Region exceeds its target of 750,000 seedlings to be raised and distributed.

The Region has shared the target among their two District offices and the Regional office. The Sunyani District is expected to raise 400,000 seedlings, Dormaa, 250,000 seedlings, whiles the Regional office is expected to raise 100,000 seedlings.
In light of this, Management at the Bono Regional Office, under the esteemed leadership of the Manager, Mr. Augustine Gyedu, has declared Thursdays and Fridays mornings, as GGD nursery periods. All members of staff including National Service personnel, are obliged to visit the nursery from 8:00 am – 11:00am, and take part in the various nursery activities such as sowing, planting, tidying, re-packing and weeding.
The Regional Manager in an interview, underscored the importance of an all-inclusive strategy as the best way to achieve results and save cost. According to him, the strategy will give staff a sense of belonging and pride in being part of the success story.
Mr. Gyedu said so far, the Regional office has raised 124,000 seedlings exceeding the target of 100,000. However, they are still raising more to support the district offices when the need arises.
He is optimistic that the Region will exceed their target and encouraged other regions to emulate them since there is not enough funds to purchase the seedlings.
He highlighted Gmelina, Teak, Ofram, Cashew and Cedrela as species of seedlings raised in the Bono Region ahead of GGD 2024.
The Green Ghana Day is slated for June 7, 2024
