OUR HISTORY

Pals of the Earth with it records dating as far back as in the mid 80s was known as Nemco Farm an organization which sole interest was into nursing seedlings and tree plantation for environmental preservation and as well creating socio-economic and community co-benefit where these projects were initiated.

 

With no adequate funding the activities of the organization came to a halt in the late 90s to early 2000 with most of its plantations being encroached by the natives. The only property left standing is its seedling nursing facilities and a tree forest area covering approximately 360 hectares, located in the Central Region of Ghana.

 

Now, Nemco farm is PALS OF THE EARTH registered under the Department of Registrar General on the 8th of April 2010 as a non-profit organization with a more expanded tentacles, activities and projects
