Online Training

Terms and conditions:

  • Preference will be given to individuals with little or no experience in similar work, and/or owners of very small land areas (100-200 square meters) waiting to be afforested.
  • Number of trainings offered per month are limited to 4/5.
  • The training is not offered to large corporations or groups.
  • Video based high speed internet essential.
  • The training will have limited scope for outdoor/field work and is more theory based.
  • Depending on the needs of the participant(s), the trainer(s) will either keep the module generic or site specific (via video conferencing).
  • The training is an interactive, conversation based collaborative exercise between the trainer(s) and the participant(s).
  • The Miyawaki method challenges most conventional schools of thought on plantation and afforestation, hence participants are required to be extremely open minded.
  • Afforestt's scope of work here is limited to remote guidance only.
