The Ghana Garden and Flower Show (GGFS) will be held from Thursday December 8 to12 this year at the Efua Sutherland Children’s park on the theme “Unleashing growth-spread the love.”
The five-day event is being organised by the Strategic Communication Africa Limited (Stratcomm Africa) and the Ghana Garden and Flower Movement (GGFM).
A statement issued and copied to the Ghanaian Times in Accra yesterday said “the December edition of the Show was introduced in 2021 to usher in the 10th anniversary of the main GGFS and has become a regular annual activity.”
According the statement, the show would witness activities such as exhibition, gardening workshops and masterclasses for adults and children, garden playground for children, Christmas family activities, as well as a paint and sip session.
It also mentioned that Stratcomm Africa’s annual end-of-year thanksgiving service, Praise Jam, will also take place in the Park on the December 11, 2022.
The statement said exhibitors were poised to meet the garden needs of patrons with variety of plants, garden ornaments, furniture and other garden- themed items, such as clothing and many others.
It said the services of exhibitors were aimed at contributing to the sprucing up of the homes and surroundings of customers for Christmas while contributing to the fight against climate change and environmental degradation.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Stratcomm Africa and Convener of the Ghana Garden and Flower Movement, Ms Esther A. N Cobbah, said Christmas was a time of love, and called on Ghanaians to show love for each other and spread love, including showing love to the earth.
She said climate change and environmental degradation was threatening the existence of everyone and that it was the duty of the citizenry to fight to protect the earth.
“As we are aware, COP27 is ongoing now and we encourage all to take responsibility and contribute to the fight against environmental degradation. We all have a role to play.
“There is health, beauty, wealth and more in protecting the earth, so this Christmas and beyond, go on, love the earth and spread the love,” she said.
Ms Cobbah said earlier this year, the movement celebrated 10 years since its inception and reaffirmed the commitment to contributing to the realisation of the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through promoting a greener, cleaner, healthier, wealthier and a more beautiful Ghana.
She said Stratcomm Africa, through the GGFM, would continue to empower all Ghanaians to adopt eco-friendly lifestyles and help promote sustainable living.
