FOR MORE INFORMATION AND TO BOOK A PLACE GO TO: WWW.AGENDAGOTSCH.EU WHAT IS SYNTROPIC FARMING? Syntropic Farming is an answer to many of mankind’s urgent questions. By learning from and translating nature’s processes and ecosystem dynamics to farming, it results in an independence from external inputs (including irrigation), growth of healthy soil, carbon sequestration and a regeneration of ecosystems. Syntropic Farming is about creating diverse, rich and resilient ecosystems that are productive and economically viable. WHAT IS THE WORKSHOP ABOUT? This course is for people interested in getting to know Syntropic Farming and understanding its methodologies. This course will give you a good overview about the topic and the field work allows you to learn by doing. We are looking for course participants eager to learn Syntropic Farming, both in terms of theory and philosophy, as well as by practical application. You do not have to be experienced in farming, but it is helpful. Since Syntropic Farming is a holistic approach and working with nature’s processes and the dynamics of ecosystems, we are excited to have open-minded and curious people in our trainings. This is a “workshop” which means we will work in theory and practice. At least half of the workshop time will be spent in the field. Please be sure you are physically equipped to attend to these tasks. This is especially true for the training in Switzerland, where we are in a steep, hillside setting and walking from the accommodation to the course venue takes 30 min. COURSE GOALS: • Understand the Syntropic Mindset – what is the underlying theory and why is it so beneficial • Understand the core practices that are used in Syntropic Farming • Have a practical experience of applying the core practices in the field COURSE CONTENT: We are just one small step away from total abundance – bad soils and scarcity of water are human perceptions, not nature`s! Ernst Götsch We are just one small step away from total abundance – bad soils and scarcity of water are human perceptions, not nature`s! Ernst Götsch The Syntropic Mindset • What is Syntropic Farming & what differentiates it? • The role of forests in food production • Understanding the power of succession • The role of humans in supporting the succession process • A basic glossary of syntropic systems Core Practices • Growing soil – the role of organic matter • How to become independent from external inputs • Stratification • Consortium planting within a successional cycle • Systems to match your market’s needs • The effect and role of selective weeding and pruning Practical Exercices Work in an actual project on site to enhance learning by doing. The activities might vary due to season and weather conditions. We aim to let you experience: • setting up structures to understand systems setup and goals • planting consortiums to understand optimal species and succession of consortiums • do selective weeding/pruning to understand its role in the acceleration of growth and progression of succession
