Welcome to the Farmer Training Centre (FTC), a premier facility where farmers and professionals come to gain practical skills and knowledge in agroecology. With over 10 years of experience and insights from our core farmer network, we have cultivated a highly skilled team of facilitators who deliver comprehensive training modules on various aspects of agroecology.
At our 1000-acre farm, we believe in a hands-on approach to learning. Students spend most of their time in the field, engaging in practical activities that reinforce their understanding of agroecological practices. With a strong emphasis on experiential learning, we have trained over 8000 farmers and professionals from around the world
