On the eve of Nepalese New Year 2069 B.S., Team for Nature and Wildlife (TNW) launched a program titled “Agriculture Camp” with an objective to enhance the knowledge and skills of rural based small-scale farmers on commercial farming.
This is the program especially designed for rural small-scale farmers who are deprived of necessary technical knowledge, skills, information, guidance and further support for commercial farming.
The duration of the agriculture camp depends on the demand of the farmers and available resources.
• Commercial farming training
• Organic farming education/awareness
• Organic compost production training from household, community, agro waste, vermin composting and human urine processing for compost production
• Agro enterprise/cooperative formation, development, and management training
• Facilitation in the registration and development of Agro enterprise/ cooperative
