Farmers from Taveuni (Fiji) are sharing knowledge and practices at the 1st POLFN meeting
Learning exchanges continue within our first regional project, Kiwa Pacific Organic Learning Farms Network POLFN!
During the month of April, the Kiwa POLFN team visited the Teitei Taveuni group of farmers based in the garden island of Fiji, Taveuni. This meeting was the opportunity to learn more about sustainable practices, organic and agroecological agriculture programs and projects.
Teitei Taveuni is an active network of farmers that are continuously researching and adapting farming practices on 10 demonstration farms. Over time, the project team has grown and the members are now experts in their fields.
While building a sense of community among farmers, this visit is achieving a fundamental step in the project’s overall philosophy: Farmers getting inspired from complementary practices ultimately become more resilient.
