Online training is to help individuals make a small patch of forest on their own.
Time: 4 hours X 2 days
Objective of the training is to help the participants learn the Miyawaki method by understanding:
Terms and conditions:
Preference will be given to individuals with little or no experience in similar work, and/or owners of very small land areas (100-200 square meters) waiting to be afforested.
Number of trainings offered per month are limited to 4/5.
The training is not offered to large corporations or groups.
Video based high speed internet essential.
The training will have limited scope for outdoor/field work and is more theory based.
Depending on the needs of the participant(s), the trainer(s) will either keep the module generic or site specific (via video conferencing).
The training is an interactive, conversation based collaborative exercise between the trainer(s) and the participant(s).
The Miyawaki method challenges most conventional schools of thought on plantation and afforestation, hence participants are required to be extremely open minded.
