ADINKRAFARM has been offering programmes to the community for over 10 years. This black-owned heritage land will continue to operate as a cooperative, community-building organization. 

It is a welcoming space for all, based on the principles of AFRICENTRIC Leadership which require optimism, confidence, truth, knowledge centered on African cultures and values, love, life-long learning, and living in harmony with nature and humanity. We offer opportunities for community to to learn plan and develop in harmony through three pillars of sustainability: RECLAIM, BUILD and GROW.


Renovate and Refurbish projects  RECLAIM the existing property, Cultural events aim to  RECLAIM our African heritage and community connections.


We are exploring opportunities to BUILD on the property further by adding new indoor and outdoor spaces and features to the property.  Planned building initiatives include: Accommodations, Treehouse, Leadership Centre. This project is also about investing to BUILD a community institution for the benefit of future generations. 


Respect to Asase Yaa (Mother Earth), we will cultivate the land to GROW food to support secure food sources and generate alternative sources of power.  Adinkra Farm has conducted an assessment of the soil and have successfully grown crops including sunflower seeds, beans, garlic, melons, carrots and kale.

Depending on COVID 19 Restrictions

This year’s programme will focus on the technological skills and information needed to lead our people into the future. Building on the grounding principle of SANKOFA, we will learn from the past as we look to the future with activities that will fortify young people.

The Walnut Foundation

Part proceeds of this event will go towards a contribution to The Walnut Foundation – a Men’s Health Interest and Prostate Support Group working with the Black Community in identifying the needs of Black Men. They support in areas of health and health-related issues to provide a forum for discussion in a comfortable, safe and supportive environment.

A Note From Andre:

My reason for choosing the Walnut Foundation was after learning that my grandfather had passed away from prostate cancer and a lack of support within the black community.  It was only fitting, therefore, that I would dedicate my time and resources to an organization that is providing the black community with the help it needs to better inform and educate the community. My appointment to the Board of Directors as Director of Youth Engagement has given me so much appreciation for the work the Foundation does. To work behind the scenes in planning the direction of the foundation is extremely rewarding.


2023 Rebound Wellness Experience

This year’s retreat is guided by the theme, “GET OUT OF THE FOG.” Rebound, Reclaim Refresh. We will take time to reflect on the importance of self care and the fundamental benefits and staying active.

The retreat will feature a series of activities to give participants a whole-body experience, including yoga, meditation, nature walk, dangle fit yoga and cultural drumming. It will also feature a kiddies’ corner, information sessions on wellness and breakfast will be offered to participants. Additionally, there will be a 50/50 raffle where funds will be raised for charity. Details of the charity will be provided later.


Dangle Fit Back Care

Danglefit uses aerial slings to apply inversion therapy to the back and spine. We invert participants (allowing them to literally hang upside down) and have them perform tasks, for example, writing backwards with their non-dominant hand. This brings greater volume of blood (nutrients and oxygen) to the brain. This process causes the brain to do something that it has never done before and in ways that it has never done them before. This encourages the brain to develop new brain cells and new neural pathways, thereby fighting dementia.

Event Committee Members

Our event committee will support in all functions of developing, promoting, organizing, and leading the Rebound Wellness Experience.
