EcoFarm School in Armenia

The Armenian Weekly reports that the International Center for Agribusiness Research and Education (ICARE) plans to establish an EcoFarm School on the outskirts of Yerevan to bring nature, the environment and modern farming techniques to the doorstep of townspeople.

EcoFarm will be the first agribusiness incubator in Armenia. The agribusiness start-ups incubated at EcoFarm will incorporate components of high-tech farming, organic farming or biodynamic farming. 

There will be educational facilities for young children to spend their day learning about the environment and experiencing life on an eco-friendly farm with small animals and gardens. Families will be able to bring their children after school and on weekends to participate in farm activities and learn environmentally friendly agriculture techniques. 

ICARE executive director Artur Grigoryan explained that people could bring their kids to a farm where they can interact with small animals, water their own lettuce plants, harvest their own melon and pick apricots or blueberries.

The EcoFarm School is in the early phases of development and hopes to run until spring 2020. The School will be named after the distinguished author and human rights activist Zabel Yessayan.
