SUSTAINABLE SMALL SCALE AGRICULTURE
Sustainable agriculture another major program adopted by WAYE. We care about agriculture as all as the environment this is why we encourage the production of food, fibre, or other plant or animal products using farming techniques that protect the environment, public health, human communities, and animal welfare. Our desire is to see agricultural practices that enable the production of healthy food without compromising future generations’ ability to do the same.
It is important to note that our trainees at WAYE are offered the opportunity to be a part of the sustainable agricultural program. They are brought in to observe and participate in the process even though it’s primarily designed to help local farmers in our community to become more productive in their agricultural practices.
