Abstract. The purpose of this project is to develop a master plan demonstration farm document. The methodology will be used to create the working extension education farm. The facility will serve as a working demonstration example of improved agricultural methods to the Lake Bosomtwe community. Local agriculture extension officers will participate in the use of the farm. Located within this area, the Lake Bosomtwe Methodist Clinic currently manages the farm land and will continue to oversee the management of it. The proceeds produced from the farm will go back to further expand the activities of the Lake Bosomtwe Methodist Clinic located in Amakom, Ghana, West Africa. The methodology will be codified for repeated use in other locations.
