Training and Workshop Materials

From October 4-15, 2021, SCALE led a Permagarden and Resilience Design (RD) training of trainers for the Takunda and Amalima Loko Resilience Food Security Activity (RFSA) teams in Mutare, Zimbabwe. Over the course of the two-week training, there were five key moments that really sunk in with the participants—moments that one participant referred to as “trigger moments.” The eight minimum standards of permagarden and RD ground each session in the principles for good resilience design in smallholder farming systems: that community-led, resource-efficient, adaptively managed landscapes can improve soil health, water management and biodiversity.
