Overall cost:$7,000

Grant sought:$7,000

Why this project:
One of the objectives of OTARE is to educate people about organic and bio-dynamic agriculture. To that end, donations were received for a project to facilitate workshops, field days, briefings, seminars, symposia, and conferences.

It is envisaged that a number of extension events will be held, including,

One-day field days

Home gardener workshops

People involved:
The project will be carried out by Biodynamics 2024.
