Himalayan Institute Mexico’s month-long intensive training course in organic, sustainable agriculture gives students an in-depth education about sustainable agriculture and hands-on practice at the Demonstration Farm.
The course emphasizes leadership training so that participants have the ability and confidence to assist farmers to become more sustainable in their own communities. Throughout the month, each student is responsible for developing a presentation, workshop, or similar project to address a challenge facing local farmers. HI Mexico provides students with the support needed to implement the best of these projects. Graduates from the program form an emerging network of leaders in sustainable agriculture. It is by training local leaders like these that will make a lasting change possible.
