ORGANICMED: Training Mediterranean Farmers in Organic Crop Agriculture
Conscious of the fact that organic farming development is part of the Common Agricultural Policy agenda, this project plans to create a stand-alone vocational training programme for Mediterranean farmers in organic crop agriculture.In addition to 150 hours of actual training content, products will comprise both trainers and trainees manuals and a guide to relevant EU legislation, to be produced on paper and on CD-Rom, in four partner languages (EL, MT, IT & EN). The pilot application in Cyprus, Greece and Malta will further involve transnational study visits for trainees and training for trainers activity will include a site visit in Italy. Following evaluation and refinement, the end products, supported by a training video will be available via the project website.Dissemination will target partners, public agencies, farmers and consumer associations, companies and professional bodies, vocational training organisations and the Mediterranean Organic Farmers Network. Electronic information bulletins, articles and press releases will precede final Information Days in partner countries, which will launch eventual commercialisation of the products and circulate a promotional leaflet.
