It is estimated that farmers will have to grow 70 percent more food than what is currently produced to feed the world’s growing population by 2050.
Apparently, more people, especially youths, need to get involved in agriculture.
The mission to keep our world to #ZeroHunger is everyone’s responsibility but you don’t have to be a farmer to be involved in agriculture.
There are lots of ‘little’ ways to help support this important industry. We share five easy ways below:
- Support Local Farmers
One of the easiest ways to be involved in your community’s agriculture is to build relationships with local farmers.
Support them by sharing helpful information and tips with them, especially the local farmers who have little or no formal education.
Also, share the latest agricultural developments with them; break the information down so they can understand.
- Buy Local
Buy and eat fresh food cultivated by local farmers. You can find these in community markets and even grocery stores.
Buying local keeps money within the community, plus you have a first-hand resource on finding information about your food.
- Grow Your Own Plants
Farmers are not the only ones with green thumbs. Get involved in agriculture by actually doing it albeit on a small scale by growing your own garden.
You can get ample resources and tips about foods you can grow in your own home on the internet. You can even grow certain foods indoors or in small containers if you don’t have lots of space.
- Promote Agriculture’s Image
Farming is rarely portrayed in the media as a young person’s game and can be seen as outdated, unprofitable and hard work.
Thankfully, that is changing as more and more young people are getting involved in agriculture in this present day.
However, greater awareness of the benefits of agriculture as a career needs to be built amongst young people.
You can use the mass media, social media, and other digital platforms to help improve agriculture’s image across a broad audience and allow for sharing of information and experiences about young farmers, in particular opportunities for greater market engagement, innovation, and farming as a business.
- Invest in Farm Projects through Digital Platforms
This is an easy but rewarding way to get involved in agriculture. You can invest in farm projects by sponsoring as many units as you are able to.
This way, you get involved in every process in the farm cycle without lifting a hoe or cutlass and you get amazing ROI after harvest.
You support local farmers, contribute towards #ZeroHunger and you earn while at it.
To get started with this, we offer you safe, secure and insured investment opportunities here at Winich Farms.
