Teaching Kenya's youth to embrace regenerative agriculture
Young trailblazer and evokeAG. Future Young Leader Alumni, George Chapman, lives on the edge of the Nairobi National Park in Kenya where he runs a regenerative agriculture farm and teaches the next generation about the importance of soil health.
This week we bring you an interview with a young trailblazer and an evokeAG. Future Young Leader Alumni, George Chapman.
George was selected back in 2020, to be part of the AgriFutures evokeAG. Future Young Leader Program, where he took to the stage at evokeAG. in Melbourne, to talk about the importance of soil health and share part of his regenerative agriculture journey.
Originally from Coraki on the Northern Rivers, George now lives on the edge of the Nairobi National Park in Kenya, where he runs an organic broiler chicken farm and uses regenerative practices at his family’s safari lodge ‘Ololo Farm‘, where he also trains and educates Kenya’s youth in organic and regenerative farming practices.
Here he shares his experience from the evokeAG. Future Young Leaders Program, and how it helped him expand his network and shape his agricultural journey.
