Train Women Farmers in Organic Agriculture, Nepal

by ASHA Nepal
Dec 9, 2008

December 2008 Update

ASHA recently sponsored a permaculture training for 28 lead farmers selected from 3 of the ASHA women groups. The training was facilitated by an expert on permaculture design, who followed findings from a feasibility study of permaculture principles in the Okarpauwa community. In addition to the formal training in Okharpauwa, the participants visited a model permaculture farm to sharpen their knowledge and understanding. Following the training, many women are practicing seed exchange, improving terrace, constructing run off channels, farmyard management (FYM), and other key permaculture principals.
