One Month Seminars

At Our Training Centre In Kenya

Course Info

In 2012, to further equip community leaders, we created a one-month training program called the Growing Health Seminar. Students travel from around the world to our training centre in Kitale, Kenya to learn about “growing health.”

The course generally runs 4 times a year – in January, April, July, and October. Each seminar is 4 weeks.

Students learn Organic Bio-Intensive Agriculture, Nutrition and Disease Prevention. They engage in hands-on skill development, best-practice gardening techniques, meal preparation, and making herbal medicine.

Graduates return to their communities to start their own community garden projects.

For international students, the cost is $300 USD. For Africans, it is 30000 kshs.
