The next February will house a new course within the project Organic Agriculture, Rural Employment Source (AEFER), which promotes the Spanish Society of Organic Agriculture (SEAE) cofinanced by the ESF under the 2007-2013 Program empleaverde Foundation Biodiversity.
The course aims to provide participating students' theoretical knowledge and experience gained by teachers (researchers, technicians, processors and farmers) SEAE members in carrying out their profession. The idea is to encourage the use of the various possibilities offered by Internet, which allows this access to information and training to people living in rural areas without timetables or displacement. The course enables a fluid relationship with the tutor and teacher, regularly updated and ongoing information. Besides, the student makes available more educational resources in the teaching-learning process.
The conversion to organic farming requires more knowledge of both the farmer and the technical advisor in the operation. It also requires management of natural resources and the interrelationships of the fallow system, supplemented by information from the market they are intended. The course arose from the need of stakeholders who often lack the time necessary for this type of training or can ot move to where the training activity is organized.
a) Get to know the principles, rationale, objectives and regulations of the AE
b) Identify AE techniques and analyze the challenges and potentials for development of organic production
