This story provides a great example of farmers learning from other farmers. You may wish to produce a call-in/text-in show that invites local farmers to discuss their experiences with farmer-to-farmer learning. The program could focus on something farmers have learned from another farmer in their own village, a neighbouring village, or even a farmer from another country. Ask participants to describe what they have learned in detail, so that other listening farmers can learn as well!
