DEAR NEW FARM:
Do you have an organic program for African farmers? Please advise.
I live in Ghana.
The Rodale Institute until recently did have a program on the ground
in Senegal for African farmers. This program used to host training
sessions for African farmers, but was put on hold for strategic
review. We hope to reestablish our Africa connection after we complete
this process later this year.
In the meantime, you can try to apply the concept and principles
of regenerative agriculture to your growing conditions in Ghana.
If you have access to the internet, you may participate in our
online organic course which will be available for free on the New
Farm website by the end of the year. It's geared toward transitioning
US farmers, but should be interesting and informative for anyone
interested in organic agriculture.
us with comments, suggestions and questions.
