It was a general discussion of the BIC Agriculture initiative. Some specific suggestions were made regarding scheduling of visits & talks: to do them on public holidays so that more folks could come for the visit.

Some folks spoke of references they have and could organise trips or talks by people in the field. Ibrahim spoke of his experiences in more detail and answered many queries by the participants from a very hands-on practical stand point.

A visit to Ibrahim's farm has been organised on Wed, 25 Dec.
