One Farmer at a Time
The Learning Center on the Model Farm represents the fourth pillar in our GISE model...Educate!
The Center is a space for collaborative learning and training on innovative agricultural practices. Due to the support of several JustHope Partners, farmers will soon be able participate in workshops and field experiments, putting techniques learned into practice on their own farms.
Now with the completion of the open air classroom space--made possible by an $8000 donation from Kinsley Congregation in Kansas -- and the equipment space donated by First Methodist in Colo Springs, we will be able to pilot the first phase of experiments: heirloom seed harvesting, inter-cropping, earthworm and humus production, homemade organic fertilizers, and much more! Having a space where ideas can come together for simulation allows us to determine viable solutions for farmers.
