Prepare a homemade insecticide from Neem leaves and other all-natural products

Have you ever been curious to know how all-natural insecticides are made? Perhaps you have plants in your home or garden, or perhaps you are already practicing large-scale agriculture and you are searching for a way to keep your plants safe from insects without using chemical products? We have the solution for you! 

In this workshop, we offer you the chance to explore the principles of permaculture alongside young Senegalese farmers. This workshop, which includes both a theoretical and practical component, takes place in a small farm dedicated to training, educating, and experimenting with techniques and practices of agroecology, promoting agriculture that is both environmentally and economically sustainable in the region of Toubab Dialaw. The farm is committed to local skills development, and regularly offers offers capacity-building programming for the local community; today, their farmland is available to about one hundred local women who have been trained in sustainable agriculture and who are now engaged in the production and sale of their own organic produce. 

Under the guidance of an expert, you will learn some of the techniques used to prepare all-natural insecticides using Neem (a local plant) and other plants available in the region. At the end of the workshop, you’ll be able to bring what you’ve learned home to your own gardens and farms, using locally-available plants and ingredients to care for your plants in a way that is natural and ecologically friendly!
