The National Council of Churches of Kenya has today launch a Training / Learning site for farmers on Conservation Agriculture.

The launch of the Conservation Agriculture Training Site was officiated by Hon Njue Njagi Kaithungu, the County Executive Committee Member for Agriculture in Tharaka Nithi County, and Rev Canon Chris Kinyanjui, the General Secretary. The General Secretary joined the meeting via Zoom, while the CECM was represented in the event held at MCK Marimanti Rural Training Centre by Nicholas Mokaya, the Director for Agriculture in the county.

The Training / Learning Site, accessible at www.fabo.org/ncck/NCCK_CA, is an innovative approach to promote food security by providing a training and learning experience for farmers in Semi Arid areas who adopt Conservation Agriculture.

Speaking during the launch, Rev Canon Chris noted that the future of food production is in technology, noting that Conservation Agriculture is a scientific method of promoting food security in semi arid areas.

On his part, Director Mokaya thanked the NCCK for the support given to farmers in the county. He especially appreciated the development of the Training Site since Conservation Agriculture is one of the key pillars in the county’s Fiscal Planning Paper.

The Conservation Agriculture Training Site delivers rich content in text and multimedia formats. It is based on the FABO platform developed and maintained by our partner Dan Church Aid (DCA). The Site has been developed during the implementation of “Upscaling Conservation Agriculture for Improved Food Security and Sustainable Livelihoods” (CA Project Phase II) which is a partnership between the NCCK and the United Church of Canada and Canadian Food Grains Bank.

The Conservation Agriculture Training Site is available to the general public.
