Sharing agricultural practices, processes & perspectives.
working in harmony with the land
Historically indigenous techniques and practices have underpinned civilizations in Africa. A reverence for nature is a quality that was apparent in many different groupings of peoples across the African continent.
These days it’s common to hear people talk about sustainable living and living in harmony with nature, concepts not a million miles away from how people lived in days gone by.
Agriculture is being utilised effectively to support economies in various parts of the world and to a limited degree, in parts of Africa. However, it is clear far more can and needs to be done to develop the sector across the continent. AGN seeks to do its bit to move the needle in this regard.
To this end AGN is establishing a platform via which practioners/ stakeholders in the agricultural sector can network, share agricultural practices, process, & innovations. It will also act as a fourm to problem solve.
Role of AGN:
1) A repository of agricultural information that details conventional and unconventional approaches to agriculture and that also highlights the nuances and specifics experienced by farmers and specialists
2) A conduit to facilitate networking between agricultural practitioners, and also between agricultural practitioners and people interested in undertaking an agricultural initiative
3) A resource to promote agriculture and related activities/ innovations through direct and indirect engagement in order to make a positive impact on creating meaningful employment and income generation for Africans across the continent
