GRAPE's Autumn School for Agri-Intermediaries in Surkhet recently brought together 23 participants working in agriculture-based organizations across various agroecological zones in Nepal.
The five-day program commenced with a comprehensive exploration of climate change and its implications for agriculture. Participants also gained insights into effective cropping systems, soil management, and water management, especially pertinent in the context of changing climate patterns.
In addition to classroom sessions, participants embarked on field visits to demonstration sites, engaging in activities such as biochar production, soil health testing, seed exchange, and hands-on entomology exercises. The Autumn School served as a vibrant platform for exchanging ideas and solutions, contributing to positive changes in agriculture.
