Enhancing agroecological practices with the launch of Organic Learning Farms Centres in Fiji
The Pacific Organic Learning Farms Network (POLFN), launched its very first Organic Learning Farms Centres in Fiji, with two farms demonstrations projects:
- the Mudrenicagi Farm in Bua Province,
- the Navuso Farm in the Rewa Province.
How will these learning centres help Pacific farmers ?
The benefits of organic and agroecological methods in the context of the Pacific will be explained with concrete advices and new techniques. The centers will also illustrate the benefits and co-benefits of these practices in order to improve soil and water quality, to protect biodiversity, and to avoid artificial fertilizers.
These centers will enhance the transition from current farming to sustainable farming. The Kiwa Initiative is proud to enable this new collaboration along with its partners SPC and the fijian government, a major step to promote a major agroecological transformation in Pacific Island states.
