Olericulture is the process of growing vegetables – this could be leaf or fruit-bearing vegetables. You must have a genuine interest in growing vegetables and working with vegetables.
The physical training on the farm is for 12 weeks (3 months) and this training cannot be done online or virtually. As an applicant, you must be able to commit fully to being on the farm for 12 weeks and participating in all the activities on the farm.
As an applicant, you must be someone who has the mental capacity to work on the farm and to work with others. The training allows for those who live with a disability, we, however, need it written in the provided space during the application, so we are able to adequately prepare for you. You must be someone who has developed the ability to work with others, as we are focused on building a team and not individual heroes.
You must be willing to relocate to Kurere village, Awowo, Ewekoro LGA, Ogun state. This is physical training, and it cannot be attended by proxy, so as an applicant you must be willing to live within the farm during the training. In addition, at the end of the training, participants get to have 3 plots of hydroponics farms to manage as a cluster, therefore everyone must be willing to continue to live within the farm environment so they can continue to manage their farms.
The program is not open to anyone who has a criminal record, for anyone who applies, and we find out that those who have a criminal record will be expelled immediately from the partnership.
