Kenya (various locations)
From Nanyuki to Embu and the Rift Valley to Lake Victoria, A Growing Culture has conducted farmer training workshops for agrarian groups across Kenya. Geared to breed innovation and farmer research, these workshops taught sustainable agriculture through principles, not techniques. Through hands on instruction, AGC was able to support farmers to become agents of change.
“The group was very pleased with the training AGC did and as a result we are implementing AGC’s teachings on ecological farming and pest management without using harmful chemicals which are in the long term bad for both people and the environment. We are also applying fish fertilizers to our gardens. As a result of AGC’s trainings we are doing a program of implementing Kitchen gardens in every home of our farmer group.”
