Benefits of organic farming training and follow-up for groups includes:
• It is a less expensive learning method.
At KIOF, we maintain contact with various groups through regular magazines, for instance What’s About, and through inviting the groups to attend Farmers day in November/December of every year. The institute is also promoting the marketing of organic produce and certification process.
How to apply for the farmers training course
Farmers or persons interested in organic farming courses should form a group of at least 20 farmers within their community. They should look for convenient places within their village for a venue. They should then collect training fees and inform KIOF. During the week of the training, the group should organise their own meals and training materials.
