    Call it laziness on my part, but this article really needed details. What crops were farmed? How can others participate in the event? What was the event about?

      Don’t show your frustration here. If you’re interested in participating simply google female food hero award Nigeria or contact the organisers. This publication is simply on the award ceremony
