Programs

The Learning Farm's aims to enable youth to become economically self-sufficient, capable, and productive members of their communities through participation in a 100 days residential training program where they learn about organic farming, enterprise development, and a number of other valuable life skills. The Learning Farm has 3 main programs; the basic program, an advanced program, and the alumni program. The basic program takes in 30 to 40 youth to learn about organic farming for 13 weeks. After completing their initial training, 3 to 5 students from the basic group who demonstrate appropriate interest in organic farming and the motivation to deepen their knowledge are invited to continue to the advanced program. At the end of this program they will be more ready to contribute effectively to the organic farming sector with a deeper understanding of facilitation processes, higher communication skills and a greater knowledge of farming practices.
