“Learning Agroecology” is a project initiated by Astovot in recent years to learn how to cultivate differently and to safeguard biodiversity. This is the operation of an agro-ecological plot where a wide variety of organic vegetables are grown for local consumption. This project has two components: the first component is the organic vegetable production and the second is the eco-management awareness and agroecology training. In setting up this project, Astovot plans to focus on the essencial subjets of agroecology: manual agricultural techniques, respectful of fauna and flora (without chemical products, with vegetation cover, combining plants and vegetables, etc.) so as to enrich the biodiversity of the site and the fertility of the soil. Thus, this project is also intended to be a platform for the exchange of skills, experimentation and promotion of organic crops between local and international volunteers. The agro-ecological garden is located in an environment rich in biodiversity and vegetation, with a small river next to it that allows the watering of the plots. PROJECT OBJECTIVES - To preserve the site's biodiversity. - To promote the cultivation of organic products (vegetables and fruits) through agroecology. - To promote educational exchanges on agroecology and other practices for a more responsible agriculture. MAIN ACTIVITIES  Clearing and weeding.  Preparation of soil and seedlings, plowing, hoeing.  Compost manufacturing.  Seedlings protection (shading), transplanting of young plants, watering of seedlings of various cultivated vegetables.  Reinforcing the garden fence.  Construction of a shed in straw and bamboo for the storage and conservation of tools and products.  Organization of educational activities with the children in the garden.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

ACCOMODATION Housing conditions are generally rudimentary, simple and specific to the location of the project. On site, volunteers are accommodated in groups of three or four people per room. The distribution per room depends on the collective organization of the volunteers themselves. Depending on the location, volunteers can use dry toilets and showers without tap water. The association available to volunteers some plastic or foam mats. Volunteers can bring sleeping bags with them if possible. There is access to drinking water on the site. However, access to electricity and the internet may be limited. This is due respectively to the blackouts and the difficulties of accessing the Internet. FOOD During the entire period of the workcamp, it is the volunteers themselves who prepare their own meals. An internal organization will make it possible to create groups which will alternate to take care of the different household tasks including cooking. Food products used for cooking are both imported and local, and sometimes organic. The diet of each volunteer will be taken into account in the preparation of meals. Volunteers will have access to tropical fruits such as bananas, oranges, pineapples, mangoes, avocados, papayas, etc.

Locatie en vrije tijd

LEISURE In addition to the main activities of the site, several other activities are organized such as discovery walks, hikes, parties or cultural meetings. These activities allow volunteers to get in touch with local populations but also to discover Togolese culture. During the weekends, collective excursions are organized by the volunteers and their leaders to discover the tourist sites of the region where the workcamp is taking place. It should be noted that expenses related to excursions and outings of volunteers are not included in the participation fees. However, the association can facilitate or negotiate transport for volunteers during outings or excursions.
