AG Trainings For Farmers
Blue Atlas constructed a Food Equity and Sustainable Training (FEAST) Center + Production Classroom in Marsh Harbor on the Abaco Islands. The FEAST Center doubles as a school garden and a training classroom, currently showcasing aquaponic and hydroponic growing methods accessible to the larger community. Since conception, our training has reached over 700 people. We will continue to partner and offer training to interested individuals to learn concepts that are new to them. We work with specialists in their field to provide both hands-on and virtual training for interested parties in the regions we operate, covering an array of topics; Aquaponics, Aquaculture, Composting, Nutrition and Seed Saving.

With our specialist training series, we work with experts in their fields to share information on new growth methods, nutrition focusing on mind + body wellness, and practical approaches to economically viable AG solutions.

We worked with CFHS on multiple trainings to facilitate two different trainings.
Grow Happy Days to Schools around Abaco where we focused on connecting children to a soil regenerative gardening technique, nutrition and how their emotions are impacted by what we eat.
Neural Network Therapy (NNT) was a training we hosted for adult members in the community to come and learn some concepts around brain health and moving through trauma.

We will be visiting the region to assess the situation as rebuilding talks begin to see how we can provide support to meet emergency food needs as well as help farmers rebuild.
