Kumasi is a place in Ghana which is one of the largest cities in the country, due to that there is a lot of investors and companies trooping in from different places to engage their market because of the large market size and place.This makes it easy for marketter to exhibit and showcase their visions they have on site.The place is important because they have quality road networks that makes easy movement from one place to other,fully electricity which enables us to work always within our working hours and also faster and easier. There is also easy loaction of our clients you are interested in our vision, also good communication networks through the use of emailing to send and recieve certain information needed and mobile or land line communication which enables us reach our desired people

our place is one of a kind to be in due the number of people who are into their various institutions working on their visions and also majority of the people are well literates who we can relate with,we get good roads ,availability of  electricity which is one major transitions having impact of our community and also our traditions being able to adopt and cope with easily.we get many food dishes in our place that tastes good, having nice flavors and easily to cook in the shortest possible time for one to eat.There is also a good climatic weather condition for one to stay in the place .There are different people sited in the place who speaks the same language like Twi language and English whereby there also different ethnic groups in the place with each respecting and performing it ethnic duties.we get unique cultural trends such as our way of traditional dressing whereby we wear Kente cloth which is produced in the place and also our kind of food we cook.Many of the people are also into farming activities due to the  forestry reserves we have and our rich of our soil which enhance growing of crops,moreover there is also more rivers surrounded around the place which enables the people who are into fishing activities and the dominant crops are cocoa ,cassava, maize which is good for our climatic condition.                The hopes of the people are to use the available raw materials and ameneties in the place useful in order to fetch them income ad other meaningful acts.

Challenges: Describe the current (2020) and the future (2050) challenges that your food system faces.

we are currently faced with environmental hazards such as electricity being down sometimes when working  and fumes smokes from vehicles like cars,motor cycle because there are many people in the place using vehicles thus also causing harm  to the people which does not allow free movement of people from one place to other. we face some challenges sometimes in our diets because there are some fisherman who use bad methods of fishing like the use of agro chemicals to fish which end up killing and poisining most of acquatic animals which can cause harm to the people and also farmers using chemicals to get their foodstuffs ready for market which can also lead to harm of the people .Due to many  people in the place there is high demand of goods ad services which can lead to inflation rise.The culture of the place also changes the way people live their life in our place which do not make the people comfortable living in the place. There is also a challenge of technological tools and machines, due to the high amount of taxes imposed on people using these technological tools,most  people can not afford to buy the technology tools thus slowing their work being done because technology makes work faster and easier. There is also high amount of electricity bills being paid by most of the people due to high voltage some technology tools consume. There are also bad policies that do not favour the people and our visions

Address the Challenges: Describe how your Vision will address the challenges described in the previous question.

we will build and provide solar machines in order to use our machines when we need them in case there is outbreak of electricity.Environmental pollution through the outbreak of smoke and fumes from various vehicles by detecting people who use second hand vehicles rather than using new vehicles which will enable a conducive atmosphere for movement and working.There must intense training for agricultural farmers,fisherman to draw their attention to the effects of using these chemicals in their activities in order to help avoid causing harm of inhabitants in the place.We seek to manufacture and build machines that will not consume much electricity to enable more people buy these technological machines we make ,also providing engines to various machines we built that be powered by diesel or petrol to avoid much taxes imposed on the people in the place.

High Level Vision: With these challenges addressed, now provide a high level description of how the Place and the lives of its People will be different than they are now.

With these challenges being addressed there will be low amount of smoke and fume polluting the atmosphere whereby the people will be free from these pollution to avoid them from getting infected or sick to enhance the people get much energy to work harder to earn income for themselves also help developing the place.With their diet the people will get high well contained energy food to eat to stay them healthy and strong all the time and also avoid killing of these acquatic animals when chemicals are being used on them thus people who also use the river as their drinking source will also be safe when the water is not polluted by the .chemical.The manufacture of solar machines will help relieve pressure on our electricity to avoid constant power outbreak when we need them most times and also the building and manufacturing of these machines with engines that are being powered by diesel or petrol.

Full Vision: How do you describe your Vision for a regenerative and nourishing food future for your Place and People for 2050?

The provision of solar machines and machines built with engines powered by diesel,petrol enable avoid the environment from being polluted by smoke ,fumes from various machines the people use in the environment.With our diets being fully taken care of by giving them thee intense training practice on how to deal with farming foodstuffs and fishing methods it will help avoid the people from taking  in bad foodstuffs thus promoting the health life of the people always.The culture of the people should not always be imposed strictly on the people to help them live their own style of living.With the economic factor taxes imposed on the people should be reduced for them to enable each and everyone to pay for and also the government going in to support some of the people with funds and other technology they need in order for the people to achieve their visions.There should be good policies  for the people to adhere to thus making them feel comfartable and sustain their standard of living.
