Descripción

Developing an organic farming training center in Mongolia

Since 2000, volunteers from all over the world have been participating in our summer programs which were designed around building sustainable vegetable farming facilities. Over the years, we have learned that developing eco-friendly and sustainable farming facilities does require a lot of research on improving our farming methods, learning the best practices from local farmers on improving the crop quality. It also requires perseverance despite the setbacks which are imminent in the harsh Mongolian continental climate with long, frigid winters and short, warm summers. We are hoping to transform our eco-friendly vegetable farming facility into a sustainable organic farming training center which teaches the low income families how to grow healthy greens on their own. Organic fruits and vegetables are sparse and expensive in Mongolia which makes them unaffordable for many low income families. We are planning to donate any crops from our facilities to families in need in addition to providing them with the knowledge of how to grow their own crops.

Volunteers in the project starting in May will be planting vegetables such as potatoes, carrots, radishes, etc. They may also work on making fences to protect the farm.

In the next projects, volunteers will be helping at the eco-farm, and their main tasks will be removing weeds in the field, working in the greenhouse, making water canals, making compost, etc.

Project dates:

  • May 25 - June 7, 2024
