About

Organic Agriculture – Why?
Through organic agriculture smallholder farmers sustain natural resources, increase agricultural productivity and earn a price premium for their certified organic produce. This raises farmers’ household income which is reinvested in health, education and food. For this reason, organic agriculture helps to build sustainable livelihoods.

 

The Initiative
Go Organic was founded in 2012 by ITCOA (International Training Course on Organic Agriculture) alumni to provide a platform on which to build a sustainable organic network across East African borders. We bring together individuals, companies, students, organizations, institutions to promote organic principles and values. It is a multi-national initiative being managed under country-specific chapters.

 

The Challenges
The transition to organic agriculture is a time and knowledge intensive innovation process. It requires competent farmers with capabilities to make well informed decisions on natural resource management, crop choices and marketing channels by farmers themselves.
