The Solomon Islands Organic Learning Farms are officially launched
We are proud to announce the official launch of the Solomon Islands Organic Learning Farms, as part of the Kiwa #POLFN project.
These farms are set to make a significant impact on sustainable agriculture, enhancing innovative agroecological practices to boost ecosystem resilience, but also improve the well-being of our communities:
📍 Zai Na Tina Farm, in Honiara
📍 Gwa’unafiu Farm, in Malaita
The launch event took place at the Kastom Gaden Association farm, on Guadalcanal Island, with our dedicated Kiwa POLFN Team. We thank all the partners who have joined, like Mr. Lottie Vaisakavea, Permanent Secretary for the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock, and Ms. Florence Rahiria, Deputy Director of the Pacific Community (SPC) Land Resources Division. We're also thrilled to have the support of local farmers, high school students, and representatives from neighboring communities.
This ground-breaking initiative implemented by the Pacific Organic and Ethical Trade Community at the Pacific Community-SPC pushes for traditional methods of farming intertwined agroecological approaches to promote organic practices and fostering knowledge exchange among small-holder farmers in the Solomon Islands.
