Natural and organic practices are presented and promoted. Attendees are equipped with knowledge and fundamental skills to impact the lives of multiple people groups from rural farmers to urbanites. Participants learn soil rebuilding techniques, appropriate plant choices, varying food producing methods with application and appropriate integrations, plant nutrition and natural pest and disease management, agro-forestry, permaculture, bee keeping, human nutrition, natural medicines, business and leadership development, and animal agriculture all within the context of people centered community development. The course provides both a personal and team learning experience. Classroom teaching integrates practicals and implementation of the methods taught in the program. Participants develop their own food growing plots, experience growing field crops, take part in caring for a livestock enterprise and practice environmental stewardship. Field assignment is incorporated weekly throughout the school where staff led student teams work in selected collaborative communities. Here students get hands-on experience in supervised community development application providing opportunity to implement learned principles and practices. Field assignment (Community Collaboration) includes weekly planning, prayer, and strategy for multiplying learned views, principles and practices in the collaborating communities. The learning process is strengthened by weekly debriefing, processing, and coaching of the team experiences in the collaborating communities.
