Membership of Zimbabwe Small Holder Organic Farmers Forum.
The ZIMSOFF membership is drawn among farmers who are practicing sustainable agricultural practices such as agro ecology and organic farming. The farmers are empowered with leadership and technical skills at local, regional and continental levels. These skills also used to engage and cooperate with various policy makers within the entire agricultural value chains. It is critical that farmers are given a space to express their democratic right and to hold governments accountable to fulfilment of their socio-economic rights. This also entails farmers being pro-active in determining their own farming practices, their own type of food they want to produce with their own farming practices and what to consume and sell to other regions.
