On Sunday, March 27th, we completed the advanced agroecology training, which was provided by Saad Dagher, to several agricultural cooperatives including; Ard Al Yaa's from Saffa village, Ard Al Falaheen from Kufor Ni'meh, Juthoor Shams from Tulkarm, and Rumman from Saffa. The training aimed to support these cooperatives to develop their work, and deepen their understanding of agroecology and its different economic, national, and environmental dimensions.
The training was held for 10 days, and took place in the Ard Al Yaa's cooperative in Saffa village. It focused on planning, and financial management of cooperatives, as well as estimating the value of work, and individual and collective responsibility. The training also covered the value of cooperatives such as democracy, equality, and equity in revenues, solidarity, safety, and collective care.
As for the Juthoor Shmas cooperative, the training focused on transforming the agricultural practice towards agroecology, which serves the national and economic dimensions.
