Today, October 2, is the World Farm Animals Day. Though it has sad origins, as it was founded to highlight the poor conditions suffered by farm animals especially in the commercial model of livestock production.
In line with Green Action Week, Juan Organiko and special guest, Dr. Rose Sambo will discuss the antithesis practiced by organic farmers - Diversified and Integrated farming.
