Organic Agriculture Advanced

Embark on an immersive journey into the world of ecological organic agriculture with our Organic Agriculture Advanced course. This 10-day program is designed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills to regenerate biological and mineral fertility in agricultural soils, enabling the production of healthy, affordable food while ensuring profitability for farmers. Through the application of improved techniques for bio-fertilizers and bio-pesticides, participants will learn the "how" and "why" of soil regeneration and the essential role of the 3 Ms (minerals, organic matter, and microbiology).

Ecological organic agriculture is about the diversity of resources from nature is complete with the ”3 M”: minerals, organic matter, and microbiology. A 10-day course (covering improved techniques of production and use of bio-fertilizers and bio-pesticides using locally available, low-cost materials) will teach participants how and why to regenerate biological and mineral fertility of agricultural soils and how this enables the viable production of healthy food that is affordable to consumers and profitable for farmers.
