Jonathan Konson Sesay is a revolutionary agricultural entrepreneur, advocate, and also a drop out ( year 3) student from the Institute of Public Administration and Management (IPAM) in Business Administration. He is the founder of Konson Grow Green, a new agricultural system registered with the Government of Sierra Leone and City Council. I will tell you more about it in a bit.

It was in 2014, during the Ebola pandemic in Sierra Leone, that I first came in contact with Jonathan Konson Sesay. Like me, he had also joined the United Sierra Leone Never Again Ebola campaign to raise awareness on the Ebola pandemic and support those we can through the United Sierra Leone and Messeh Leone Foundation Trust.

Jonathan Konson Sesay was a child and youth advocate during the Ebola pandemic in Sierra Leone. Thousands of young people had put their efforts, time, and resources into raising awareness against the deadly Ebola virus that took the lives of many Sierra Leoneans.

It was during those times that I first came in contact with activist Jonathan Konson Sesay, now a Revolution Agriculture Entrepreneur and owner of the Konson Grow Green. I am a great fan of nature, a nature enthusiast. I feel fulfilled when I find myself around trees, sounds of the birds, and the tranquility it gives me whenever I am around nature perfects my every second on planet earth.

Three years after Sierra Leone was declared Ebola-free, in 2017, Jonathan Konson Sesay enrolled for training on new revolution agriculture organised by Joshua Hacking during the then-Professor Monty Jones era as Minister of Agriculture that lasted for one year six months. This program shifted Jonathan Konson Sesay from advocacy to entrepreneurship.

While in college, in his third year, Jonathan Konson Sesay had the plan like many young people to travel abroad through Temple Run for greener pasture, but also realized that he could use that money to start a small business, the Green House Nursing Centre at Rokel, which could eventually pave the way for him to start the Konson Grow Green, a revolutionary way of practicing Agriculture in Sierra Leone.

In three years, Jonathan Konson Sesay has secured a nursing house in Rokel Freetown, a plantation garden in Bo, Manor Junction, Rice Mail Center in Kenema, and more. Jonathan Konson Sesay is engaged in modern-day agriculture, currently growing different types of varieties, including mango, orange, lemon, grapefruit, kola, pawpaw, 3-year coconut, Ghana cocoa, butter pear, cashew nut, guava, soursop, oil palm, chuck chunk plump, plantain, banana, flowers, Krio apple, Moringa, Tombi, and more.

Jonathan Konson Sesay sells, supervises, and plants these varieties for big and small businesses in Sierra Leone, attracting hundreds of individuals interested in these varieties.

In an interview with me, Jonathan Konson Sesay disclosed that he is looking for investors to be able to do more. He noted his frustration with Sierra Leone Government not having any plantation gardens of their own. Jonathan Konson Sesay mentioned that he will be able to provide plantation gardens in all sixteen districts if given the needed support of President Bio’s Feed Salone initiative, ensuring that Sierra Leoneans have sufficient food.
