Mumbai Workshop: Reviving Family Farms (12th February, 2017)
Experiences and insights into what can make Family Farms sustainable and productive
People with a new interest in organic farming (either because they inherited a family farm, or recently acquired one), often struggle with making them self-sustaining and profitable. The reasons for problems can be varied — limitations of time, constraints of capital, inability to find the right market, lack of knowledge or reliable manpower, high costs of inputs — and while solutions are achievable it takes time and experience to address them.
Through this (full-day) interactive workshop we help participants understand what they need to do to make their Family Farms sustainable and productive. This is NOT a session for kitchen gardeners, but for folks with a serious and active interest in running their own farms.
Note: Only 10 participants can be accommodated in this workshop.
The workshop will cover the following broad areas: 1. Farm management processes 2. Farm Design and Technical Growing Topics 3. Farm Business planning and marketing
Topics covered will also include: - Biggest (and most expensive) mistakes new farmers make – poor farm management - Organic farm case studies - Soil improvement strategies and practices - Planning of succession crops
