“Sustainable agriculture training has increased our confidence”: Participants' perception on its importance

“Previously, we were absolutely ignorant with management of local resources in farming. Now, we can prepare manures and pesticides from our own local resources. It has made our agriculture more productive and saved the money. It has also saved our environment from degradation such as soil erosion, water and air pollution. Furthermore, it has increased our access to safe and healthy food as well as created a source for income generation.

All of the above-mentioned advantages were due to sustainable agriculture training and regular technical assistance of ASHA/Nepal team. Now, we have learned and adopted the sustainable agriculture practices and also suggest other farmers to adopt this. It has basically motivated us on mobilization of existing resources for agriculture purpose so that it can sustain in the community.” - Mrs. Sita Phuyal, Jaleshwori Women Group
