CAP’s NATURAL FARMING TRAINING for the Students of MYSKILLS FOUNDATION
Incorporating agroecology into all educational institutions would be one effective way for the next generation to continuously carry the seeds of transformation. Educational institutions provide space and time for expanding environmental initiatives.
A deeper understanding of the ecological facts, challenges, and the right approaches to tackle them is possible only by learning both the theory and practical side of agroecology, which can be effectively implemented by educational institutions.
This is crucial for the sustainability and prosperity of living things on the planet.
In 2019, thirty students from MySkills Foundation were trained by CAP on natural farming. They were taught composting methods, how to make growth promoters, pest repellent preparation methods, and spraying techniques, all of which increase farm output and add value to their produce.
Students learned natural composting methods using dried grass, leaves and greens. Cowdung is diluted and splashed on the compost material to speed up the composting process.
The composting methods emphasised integrated farming, in which farmers used farm input to upgrade the farm.
