Learn methods for naturally fertilizing the earth

Do you love nature? Are you curious to discover new techniques for naturally fertilizing your gardens?
This workshop is composed of both theoretical and practical experiences alongside the young farmers of  a local 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 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 the young farmers working at La Ferme, you will learn how to create your own solid and liquid compost, and how to properly mulch your gardens to protect and improve the quality of your plants (for example, by preventing weed growth or isolating the roots from low temperatures). At the end of the workshop, you will be able to implement the techniques learned in your own gardens and farms, taking care of the earth in ways that are sustainable and ecological!
