iFarm Academy

Our iFarm Hubs serve as community learning centres for regenerative farming practices, innovation and access to market. Through our technical support, our network of smallholder farmers are able to sell their produce at competitive prices and be trained in  agri-business.

Course 1: Urban farming!

We run a training program both online and face to face to empower smallholder farmers and hobbyists with a focus on vertical farming.

  • Types of crops to grow in confined spaces
  • Growing mediums
  • Inputs, such as seeds fertilisers and pest control

Course 2: Growing microgreens

Microgreens are highly nutritions super foods, packed with nutrients and extremely important for your wellbeing. Microgreens are just your regular vegetables, that are harvested just a few days after sprouting. Because they are harvested before full growth they have high concentration of nutrients. Growing them requires special techniques, ranging from the growing medium, to climate conditions. In this training we show you the basics of growing microgreens, both for pleasure and business and covers the following areas: –

  • Basic equipment to get started

This course is delivered exclusively online, with using videos and resource materials that will be shared.
