Songhai Centre – Port Novo, Benin

Songhai Centre in Port Novo, Benin is the pinnacle of a zero waste agricultural site.  Here they  integrate vegetable production, aquaculture and animal husbandry to produce a large selection of  produce.  From food (cooking oils, fruit, baked goods, juices and livestock for consumption)  to biogas, biomass, plastic recycling, fish feed, animal feed, composting, soap production and  manufacturing of all machinery used on the site.  This place takes the term self-sufficient to a whole new level.
