Farmer Field school – Novrongo

Ad-lib dance to the Compost – in Novrongo – Upper east region – Ghana. October 2016.

The first field school training for local farmers inĀ our attempt to lure them towards sustainable organic farming experimentation and away from costly dependency on chemical fertilizers.

Since I arrived in September the progress is that:

I have made five site visits in the field, supervised two composting station layouts and the initial construction of one, visited and observed/recorded our two demonstration Farm/Garden sites and started all the planning and educational materials for the now defined and ‘plotted’ : Procom Organic Vegetable Initiative (P.O.V.I.)

I have also visited old friends at the basket-makers co-operative and gotten dragged into building cobbed rocket-stove cookers in one nearby village.

Thanks to the support from you all
