Sierra Leone – Biodynamic SPIN Farming proposal


Subsistence farming is the life blood of communities in Sierra Leone

SPIN-Farming, now established in Matindi Town, Sierra Leone, will extend its roots to Samuel Town, Temini Town, Pueh Town and Torbgeh Town. These are five communities that will experience changes from now on. The people will be educated in small plot commercial farming. They will experience the benefit of their labors. They will learn how to produce fresh and healthy food for their families and communities. The project will help to identify technologies that might be used to sustain the living conditions of people in the rural areas. It will improve their farming skills, information sharing and cooperation at local, national and international levels.

The Project is intended to benefit about four hundred (400) young people within Matindi and its surrounding communities. The project shall be ongoing and more people will benefit from its various training programmes planed. Each training programme will be determined by the executive. After completion of the training programme, each trainee shall be presented with a certificate of proficiency and they will be encouraged to set up their own enterprise. About fifteen to twenty young men and women will be enrolled in each of the training components.
