 Urban Cultivation in Accra
Exotic vegetables and ornamental crops from Europe were purposely grown to feed the European settlers and to beautify their residences; the cultivation of vegetables was confined to the residences of European civil servants and merchants and the castles and forts which served as both the seat of government and the homes of the colonial administrators.
Kufogbe notes that urban sprawl in the Greater Accra Metropolitan Area is having a considerable impact on contiguous peri-urban areas, resulting in the conversion of agricultural land to residential uses, and suggests the urgent need to institute stringent measures to protect peri-urban agricultural land (Kufogbe (1996)).
Accra generates between 700 and 800 tons of municipal solid waste daily, and out of this 540 tons is organic and can be recycled into agriculture in the form of compost (Asomani-Boateng (1999)) collecting and disposing of these wastes constitute a critical problem facing city authorities.

 History of Accra
Accra was first settled at the end of the sixteenth century when the Ga people migrated there after leaving their previous settlement at Ayawso, ten miles north of Accra.
During the slave trade, however, Accra took on more importance due to the nearby forts (many of which were owned and controlled by the Dutch), a prominence that lasted until the abolition of the slave trade in 1807.
Until 1928, Accra was the main exporter of cocoa, and this was one of the main reasons for its rapid growth during the early twentieth century.
