Technical Advisor in Organic Farming

Kenya, Nairobi Area, Ongata Rongai - comundo

Organic farming methods that are more resilient to drought could be the solution to poverty and hunger. They also can contribute to reduce overgrazing and improve soil fertility. In addition, organic agriculture combines environmental protection with low-cost technology and access to markets with high prices. Organic agriculture plays an important role in rural employment by hiring more seasonal workers and given the increasing sales of organic food, will likely also create opportunities in occupations related to organic agriculture. In 2017, the Yarumal missionaries have started to establish the 3000Friends farm in Ongata Rongai as a demo farm to train community representatives, staff and missionaries to develop skills to train others and improve their livelihoods. The purpose of the 3000Friends Farm goes far beyond training different target groups. It serves as a living example of how knowledge and skills can be applied in practice by smallholder farmers (the demo farm itself is relatively small) and how it is possible to make a living from farming even with a small farm. Your activities / tasks As a Comundo co-worker, you will contribute to strengthening the farms' training and production departments.
