The first group of participants has completed an online course at “Farmer School”.
Due to the conflict in the east of Ukraine, Luhansk region lost a lot of industrial units, which is why the necessity of reorientation into agriculture appeared. “Farmer School” gives an opportunity to understand, in which sector of agriculture a person sees the perspectives for professional development. It also gives fundamental knowledge to get employed at a farm or start own company.
15 residents of Luhansk region have gained knowledge in the area of agriculture in an online format. Comprehensive training consists of 4 thematic blocks: crop production, animal husbandry, agro-technologies and agrobusiness. The curriculum takes into account regional specificities and is based on the best farming practices, which exist in Luhansk region, and contains only practical and up-to-date information.
“This course was very useful for me. We have to look for extra opportunities to earn extra money. Our family breeds goats. I have long thought of a more active participation in animal husbandry, but I always felt a lack of practical skills. Due to the training coaches I gained lots of information not only about animal husbandry, but also about the fundamentals of agrobusiness. I feel it is time to put words into action and even try something new, for instance, cheese-making,” – Tetiana, a “Farmer School” graduate, says.
Currently you can apply for the training at “Farmer School” to study in the next group. Overall, within the next 3 months 65 residents of Luhansk region can participate in the training.
