This module has been designed to help facilitators of Farmer Field School (FFS) on nutrition and local food plants to implement activities that help farmers to improve the management of local food plants.
This document presents guidelines for sowing local food plants, harvesting wild plants, seed storage and germination, and vegetative propagation. FFS facilitators and farmers, however, are encouraged to implement any other activities that they find useful not described in this module. The guidelines in this module are not written in stone. They can be regarded as suggestions and examples, rather than as a recipe or blueprint that needs to be followed in a fixed order.
This document summarizes the information on FFS activities presented in chapter 7 of the Field Guide. The preceding FFS diagnostic phase has been summarized in the Online Course on nutrition and local food plants.
