Grafting Training Exchange and Network Development
Presented By: Frutas del Mundo and ECHO
Organized by Frutas del Mundo Farm in Guatemala and ECHO Latin America/Caribbean Regional Impact Team, this Training Exchange will allow Frutas del Mundo and ECHO staff to teach and learn from each other grafting techniques for tropical fruit trees, and hold a practical training for nursery workers and grafters from farms in three sites in Guatemala.
This event is an opportunity to exchange information, contacts, and experiences in areas relevant to Guatemalan farming families and the linkages between agriculture, nutrition and health. Event organizers will also have the opportunity to visit with practitioners, particularly working with homegardens, from Seeds of the Future and the Mayan Health Alliance/Wuqu' Kawoq, as well as from the National Agriculture School (ENCA, Escuela Nacional Central de Agricultura).
