Education for adult agronomists from Gjermundnes VGS

NORSØK contributes with teaching in organic farming for adult students from Gjermundnes Secondary School.

The project is a contract on teaching a group of students. They participate in four gatherings, one kept on Tingvoll Farm. At the farm there are possibilities to see theory and praxis in coherency. Among other things visit an exhibition about soil-life and a modern stable for cows. During the gathering at the farm students meet pioneers and authors of professional texts.

The study implies Organic Farming I, that covers:

  • Basic ideas and framework conditions
  • Soil ecology and soil life
  • Plant cultivation and stock management
