The 11th edition of the Ghana Garden and Flower Show (GGFS) was opened on August 30 at the Efua Sutherland Children's Park in Accra by Strategic Communications Africa Limited (Stratcomm Africa).

The five-day exhibition brought together floriculture industry exhibitors, who displayed a variety of flowers, plants, eco-friendly products, garden designs, and educational materials.

The GGFS, which was initiated by Stratcomm Africa and serves as the flagship event of the Ghana Garden and Flower Movement, aims to promote environmental sustainability and raise awareness about the importance of harnessing Ghana's flora and fauna for national development.

It also attempts to raise awareness about the need to harness the nation's flora and fauna for national development.

Sharon Anim, Marketing Communications Manager at Stratcomm Africa, spoke during the opening ceremony on the benefits that individuals and businesses have experienced from participating in the GGFS in the past.

“For the past 11 years, we have been able to mobilize individuals and businesses to take action towards a greener, cleaner, healthier, wealthier, and more beautiful Ghana for the benefit of all. We are encouraged by the fact that the initiative continues to grow. In 2013, we started with 14 exhibitors and 1,400 visitors. In 2022, we had about 28,000 visitors.”

“These visitors have been inspired by the GGFS to plant and cultivate personal gardens. By planting, they are contributing to environmental sustainability. Some are also growing their floriculture-related businesses, generating employment, and contributing to national economic growth. And as they plant and work in their gardens, they improve their health. Of course, flowers also help to make the country more beautiful.”

Anim also mentioned the activities planned for the five-day show, which will include a theatre night, gardening seminars, and a Green to Riches youth conference.

“From the five-day exhibition to a range of educational activities such as gardening masterclasses, the Green to Riches Youth Conference, Little Green Fingers – a gardening workshop for children – and the Israeli Green Innovation Competition, the GGFS demonstrates its commitment to environmental sustainability not just through words but with impactful actions.

To complement our educational activities, the show also has many fun-packed events such as a karaoke night on Thursday, a drama night featuring a play by Latif Abubakar of Globe Production titled “Thank God for Idiots” on Saturday, a music night with the band FRA, an open mic session for new acts on Friday, a family fun day on Saturday, and many other side attractions.”
