School of Farming

the future

Future students

1. keep educating new students and trainers

The core of the school is the farming course and we want to increase the number of students we can cater for and support.

We are also starting to work with local schools to provide training for teachers and student groups.

2. build the centre for farming excellence

The land cleared, ready for the centre of excellence

A permanent base for the school with classrooms for theory lessons, test gardens to develop the best techniques and space for students to have their own allotments.

3. support our graduates

Mr Augustine has started a farmers cooperative for the graduates of the school to give them ongoing support and collective bargaining power.

We are planning to build a maize mill in the heart of the village so our students don’t have to travel miles (often on foot) to mill their grain to get a better price for it at market.

We want the school of farming to become a model for education in the area proving that with a little help people can grow themselves a better future.

Thumbs up!
