SUPPORTING FARM WORKERS
Our Conservation Agriculture training programme to empower destitute farm workers focuses on the Chegutu district in Zimbabwe’s Mashonaland West province. When required, we also provide training to church and other community leaders, as well as single-parent households and child-headed families.
Monthly 5-day live-in Conservation Agriculture training courses pioneered by our colleagues at Foundations for Farming, who provide us with expert trainers.
Trainees are taught how to feed a family for a year on just one sixteenth of a hectare.
Our national co-ordinator provides follow-up training and ongoing monitoring.

In addition, we provide all our trainees and others in their communities with free, open-pollinated seed packs from the MCF’s seed project. The packs include a step-by-step Conservation Agriculture instruction manual. View a conservation agriculture instruction manual HERE.
