Volunteers in coffee farming are needed for our project in Kenya. The volunteers do not need to have prior knowledge in Agriculture.
Agronomists or volunteers studying or training in the fields of agricultural management are needed for our farming community in a projects for sustainable Agriculture- Farming Volunteers will work with small-scale farmers to increase food security and production while promoting environmental conservation practices and adapting to climatic changes. The Volunteers will introduce farmers to techniques that prevent soil erosion, reduce the use of harmful pesticides, and replenish the soil. They will work alongside farmers on integrated projects that often combine Vertical vegetable gardening, drip irrigation,livestock management and food
The volunteers in this project will also work alongside coffee farmers and cooperatives that practice environmentally friendly coffee farming. The Volunteers in this project get to participate in all the coffee processing methods, from tree planting in the nursery, coffee harvesting using handpicked methods, wet processing in the various coffee factories located within the host village, coffee hullling using the dry processing method to coffee storage and warehousing.
Sustainable agriculture is vital to the community in Nyeri-agriculture being their only means of income- and volunteers can make a difference by helping nurture agriculturally-dependent economies and offering assistance to the small farmers to get their products on the local and international market.
