- cultivation of Artemisia annua and many other medicinal plants,
- production and use of medicines from these plants to treat many serious health problems including malaria, diarrhoea, skin problems and wounds,
- healing massage,
- nutrition, which was supported by home-made meals which provided a very balanced diet,
- hygiene and soap production,
- simple but important technologies including tippy tap, Ecosan compost toilet, charcoal fridge, solar drier, solar oven, SODIS, and fuel saving stoves,

The seminar group benefited from the participation of George Zokli. George is a valued partner of Discover in Ghana. He shared his extensive knowledge of moringa and how to make a delicious and nutritious moringa drink.
