LOCAL FARMERS RECEIVE CERTIFICATE IN ORGANIC FARMING TECHNIQUES

Update 44Following a 3-day “Organic Farming Level I” seminar held at the EK Demonstration Farm last month, the organic farm team handed out it’s first certificates to 6 local farmers. The training outlined the importance of organic farming and provided hands-on instructions for interested agriculturalists.  Moving forward, this team of newly trained farmers will work in collaboration to experiment growing new crops in the community. They plan to form a cooperative in order to sell local organic produce to surrounding resorts in the area.
