Guide to Farmer Field Schools

Guide to Farmer Field Schools

Summary

This Farmer Field School Facilitator’s Guide was developed 24 July – 3 August by a select group of CARE staff from Mozambique, Liberia and Sierra Leone in Nampula, Mozambique. The foundation of the farmer field school approach is adult learning theory and practice. Only by understanding how adults learn, and don’t learn, will one be able to implement a high quality conservation agriculture program. This was the first effortthat CARE has made to develop a high quality farmer field school curriculum for conservation agriculture. A Farmer Field School (FFS) is a season long training activity thattakes place in the field. It is season‐long so that it covers all the different developmental stages of the crop and their related management practices. The training process is always learner‐centered, participatory and relying on an experiential learning approach. Click Here.
