Would you like to learn more about the benefits of agroecological farming and how you can set up your own practice?
If you are new to this concept or already practising agroecology and would like to connect with experts, please join us for an online workshop on 9 September 2022 from 09:00 am – 11:00 am SAST. Regional experts will share their perspectives on what is agroecology, faith, its impact on climate change, and gender links.
In the Southern African region, majority of the population relies on agriculture for their primary livelihoods depending on natural resources: water, soil, air, and sun. Agroecology presents a proven way of growing food that is best for people, the planet, and the climate.
The workshop will provide resources on agroecology and its positive impact on the environment. Participants will be introduced to marketing strategies to set up viable and sustainable agroecological practices.
By the end of the workshop participants will:
- Gain understanding (from science, traditional/cultural knowledge, faith-based knowledge systems) of food production and consumption, and understand the impacts of industrialisation.
- Be equipped with resources to practice agroecology in their farming.
Workshop presenters include:
- Stefanie Swanepoel- African Earth Rights, South Africa
- Frances Davies- Zambia Alliance for Agroecology and Biodiversity
- Kanangwa Newlove- Ecological Organic Agriculture, Zambia
- Busisiwe Mgangxela- Agroecological farmer, South Africa
- Dr. Manoj Kurian- World Council of Churches
