International Course on Syntropic Agriculture with Ernst Götsch - May 21st to 30th, 2020

Details provided by CEPEAS:

This course is intended exclusively for people who are working with Agriculture, whether implementing Agro-ecosystems, working with consultancies, dissemination, etc.

It aims to deepen the knowledge about the techniques and principles created by Ernst Götsch, allowing you to move more quickly towards systems of abundance.

The course aims to generate a greater understanding of the concepts of Syntropic Agriculture, allowing the participants to have a knowledge based on solid bases, regardless of the biome they are working on, causing everyone to get rid of the recipes and start working definitively with processes.

This course will be held in Brazil, starting with Ernst himself at the CEPEAS – Syntropic Agriculture Research Center, in the Cerrado biome (5 days), then we will go to Henrique Souza’s farm (2 days), Ernst’s student, who has been implementing agro-ecosystems on his farm for 25 years, showing the great potential of this technology. The workshop ends at Ernst Götsch’s own farm in southern Bahia (2 days), when we then return to Brasilia (Brazil’s capital).
