ABOUT 15 farmers converged on Taveuni with the mission to protect the environment and practise sustainable farming methods.
The week-long program, organised by the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) for its Pacific Ecosystem-Based Adaptation to Climate Change Project (PEBACC) catered for farmers from Kadavu and Taveuni.
PEBACC project manager Herman Timmermans said the training was organised as part of an exchange program between the two groups as farming opportunities thrived in both islands of Taveuni and Kadavu.
“We hosted this exchange program to bring in farmers from the third and fourth biggest islands in Fiji and provide them the opportunity to learn from their different experiences in tourism and farming as well,” he said last week.
