Currently training is largely an individual undertaking. Refer to the Practices section for suggestions.

A curriculum is being developed to provide another avenue for training in Ziraat. Some people may wish to enroll in this structured Ziraat training when it is offered. The training will include personal practice, group presentations, discussions, and ceremony. Students will receive support from a chosen Farmer mentor. Training will be tailored to each individual’s need according to their style of learning. 

When the training program and curriculum are in place it will be announced via the Ziraat E-List.
