Experience has shown that farmers around the world learn best from their peers.
The Farmer-to-Farmer movement is based upon community empowerment, traditional knowledge, and local innovation and cooperation. Farmer-to-farmer trainings are the most effective method to “scale out” agroecology. Grow Ahead endeavours to support farmer-to-farmer trainings on climate resilient agriculture such as agroecology and regenerative organic agriculture.

Emerging from Central America in the 1970s, the “Farmer-to-Farmer” movement has fuelled the training of thousands of peasant farmers by facilitating the exchange of practical experiences and best practices.
TAKE ACTION FOR CLIMATE
Small-scale farmers practicing regenerative organic agriculture can drawdown greenhouse gas emissions and help tackle global climate change. Farmer-to-farmer trainings are an opportunity to plant a seed for scaling out climate resilience tactics quickly and effectively in culturally appropriate ways.
CULTIVATE FOOD SECURITY
Farms practicing regenerative agriculture produce higher yields and healthier food compared with conventional agriculture, especially in times of extreme weather such as flooding and drought. Spreading regenerative agricultural knowledge via peer-to-peer knowledge exchange helps to alleviate the global food crisis.
