In this regard, the High Atlas Foundation signed a partnership agreement with JLM IAV Hassan II, in Rabat, with the objective of training the women of Aboghlou cooperative.

After a grand traditional Moroccanbreakfast, the HAF team and 5 students of JLN IAM Hassan II initiated the training in the nursery,beside a beautiful landscapewith open fields filled with aromatic calendula flowers.

 

The women were divided by 3 groups; the training covered the following aspects:

·         Planting,harvest and grafting almond tree.

·         Time of irrigation.

·         Planting, harvest and dryingcalendula.

 

·         Problems of the current irrigation system in the nursery and solutions.

 

The student group shared the design of new labels for cooperative products, as well asprovided a booklet, which had been prepared to include a fully detailed presentation about the cooperative efforts.

 

At the end of training the women Student facilitator, Soufiane, shown the method of grafting almond trees. The women showed their desire to learn this method and engage in the process.

 

The women were very happy about the training and they asked many questions to develop the work in the nursery and improve their marketing strategy. They also shared with the students their knowledge in agriculture.
