This Assignment builds strongly on Activities 3.1 and 3.2, and provides the opportunity for you to consolidate your ideas for making changes in your curriculum or training programme to integrate elements of RWH&C. For farmers sharing with other farmers it asks how you will introduce ideas and practices related to RWH&C. It asks you to provide detail on the practices you wish to include, the information you will need to support these, what learning methods will be appropriate for these new elements, and how you will make the necessary changes to the curriculum or training programme, or means of sharing.
