Agriculture is changing. A new brand of modern agriculture using Agroecology as it's guiding principle is gaining traction both on the ground and in academic circles.
Jairo Restrepo has been a lead teacher in the field of biofertilisers, bokashi micro organisms and chromatography for many years.
This 3-day Regenerative Agriculture course, led by Jairo Restrepo, will be specificllay structured to provide farmers and growers with the practical tools to create fertile systems using home made biofertilisers and minimal-cost pest and disease control methods
This course combines the theoretical and practical basis for Jairo Restrepo’s Regenerative Agriculture. The main focus of Regenerative Agriculture is the health of the land and the quality of the food produced on the land. Jairo’s teaching style makes clear the how and why of regenerating biological fertility and mineral agricultural soils; and how this enables the viable production of healthy food that is affordable to consumers and profitable for farmers. His methods allow farmers to disengage from a dependence on external inputs.
The practical work covers production and application of organic fertilizers, bio-fertilisers, minerals, and micro-organisms (the ‘wines’ and ‘flours’ of Regenerative Agriculture) with a focus on producing these from locally available resources.
Who should attend:
Farmers and independent small-scale growers, food producers, food retailers, technicians, students. Anyone interested in sustainable rural development and environmental protection. Students, experienced growers and technicians looking to update and acquire ‘new’ knowledge and methodologies for promoting sustainable development in rural areas.
Please note: this course will be delivered in Spanish with a translator
