For those of you who followed our Agroecology Awareness Innovation and the training at 17 Shaft last year, we're happy to share that they've successfully secured funding for a second round of training for 15 trainers! :)

See the video of last year's training here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbiGmSn0Xfg&feature=youtu.be.

If you're interested in applying, or know of someone who might benefit from the training (fully sponsored, three-month course in Johannesburg, that includes meals and accommodation), please contact us as soon as possible. The timeline is tight, as 17 Shaft would like to commence the second round in April, to miss the dead of winter!
