The eGro education
The eGro model is at the core of our business. In order to be a scalable business and build up the farming capacity of the local farmers, we have developed educational material on permacultural practices.
The local farmers are from emerging markets and often lack academic skills. Instead, we educate in the field by example and use visual illustrations to explain our model.
The local farming communities are educated in ecosystem design, ecological and permanently sustainable approaches. This way, the farmers learn how they can both establish and maintain highly productive ecosystems. More specifically, the local farmers are educated in how to manage their local resources and restore their natural environment through landscaping and forestry, which improves the agricultural production and thus increases their output.
Cinema in the African bush
We educate farming communities both analogue in workshops and digitally with media.
One of our great successes as to drive around with a projector and do Pop-up cinemas, and amaze people with videos like these.
Take a look at eGro's model in 3D
- You can rotate the field and zoom in on the ecosystem
- You can see permacultural principles as vast crop diversity and alley farming
