We start our year with courses which really bring you forward. Organic Agriculture Basic – Animal Production – Training of Trainers. Become an expert in the area of sustainable and organic agriculture.

Animal Production Basic              (23.05.-27.05.2016)              Course ID: API 002

Livestock photo 12 2keeping and crop production can coexist very well since an integrated approach is the key to establish a closed nutrient management cycle – an essential principle of organic farming. Fresh fish, meat, milk and honey are products which can increase the household income for a small scale farmer significantly.
To run a livestock enterprise successfully good management practices are needed. The course gives introduction into animal health, feeding, housing and general production.

Permaculture Design Course         (06.06. – 17.06.2016)        Course ID: TOT003

IMG_0782This 2 weeks intensive course will equip you with the holistic design, thinking and skills to create resilient, synergistic systems for living and working with the community. A special emphasis will be on the tropics and drylands. It provides an introduction to permaculture design as set forth by movement founder Bill Mollison. By observing nature we can implement ideas and systems that build on natural processes with energy efficient, low cost and high yielding results. Our PDC graduates will leave this course ready to design and implement permaculture into a wide range of scenarios; from urban systems to small farms and community projects.

Organic Agriculture Basic            (27.06. – 01.07.2016)             Course ID: OA 018

IMG_0872With more than 6 years experience in the field of organic agriculture we have a lot to share. Using an integrated approach that combines crop production with livestock-keeping and forestry we can help you manage your plot most efficiently. In these five days you will learn how to increase and manage soil fertility, control pests and diseases by the help of botanical extracts and increase your yields by applying techniques of “Sustainable Intensification”. Participants will spend their time on our farm learning by doing and seeing how the dry land turns into useful fertile land.

We also organize tailor made courses for organizations and groups depending on needs and requirement. Contact us for any special requests for courses.
