I had the pleasure of meeting Oluwabunmi while volunteering as an offsite social reporter for the 6th African Agriculture Science Week Although we have not met in person we have both realised that we are dedicated youth in agriculture. Olu is “a blogger with expertise in agriculture, environmental biology, and ecotoxicology. Advocate of sustainable agriculture, climate change mitigation and adaptation, pollution control and environmental justice” You can find him on twitter @bunmyajilore Follow his blog The Ecoagriculturist on wordpress.
A good friend, colleague and an avid promoter of agriculture is Luke Smith. Serving on the Agribusiness Society of the University of the West Indies (2012 – 2013), Luke has interest in media production, both for video and graphic design which he focuses on in agriculture.
