Project description

The organic agriculture movement taking shape in Romania, CA 17 International was invited, in July 2001, to participate in the animation of the National Federation of Ecological Agriculture’s founding conference. The FNAE then asked our Organic Agriculture Department to prepare and run training seminars for the agricultural advisors of the National Extension Network (NAFC). The first seminar was held in Cluj.

The aim of this seminar in Cluj (Romania) was to train Agricultural Advisors in organic agriculture by running a national network of agricultural advisors.

  • Learn to know the Organic Agriculture’s organisation in Romania;
