Write shop of CFS
- 12:00 AM - 11:59 PM
TNRTP, with an aim of conducting effective training sessions in 2021 along with the line departments, conducted a one-day participatory Write Shop for the Community Farm Schools on 12 January. The focus was to develop an evaluation criteria to access domain-specific knowledge, understand the need to train existing community experts and also explore assessment and certification possibilities. Through this write shop, the team was able to collect inputs from various departments such as Agriculture, Horticulture, Animal Husbandry, Fisheries, Tamil Nadu Agriculture University, Tamil Nadu Veterinary and Animal Sciences University. To take this forward, the team is in touch with the participants of the Write Shop for creating training materials. There is also a plan to create a platform/Forum to facilitate regular interaction with the line departments to collect information about their existing programmes, conduct workshops and collect available training materials from other departments. Additionally, the team is collecting details of available trainers from line departments to successfully implement the programme.
