Introduction to Agroforestry

We are the Centre for Environmental Living and Training (CELT). We provide training and education in traditional and ecological skills, environmental issues, wildlife surveys, nature trail development, native tree nursery, agroforestry and sustainable woodland management, as well as raising awareness about them.

Thanks to your support, we can get our Introduction to Agroforestry training programme off the ground. This will include 10 days of theory and practice, giving people the knowledge and skills to initiate and / or work on an agroforestry system at a farm or horticultural site and to set up a regional agroforestry workers' co-operative.

We hope that this programme will initiate an increase in the uptake of agroforestry nationwide, helped by the co-operative of trained workers available to landowners. The programme has the potential to grow and be replicated in other communities nationwide, reaching many more than those taking part in the initial training programme.
