The best way for young farmers to communicate the importance of going organic is to rap it through social media.
This is the latest technique young farmers from the Marshall Islands, Cook Islands, Niue, Fiji and Vanuatu have been trained in at their workshop at Melanesian Hotel this week.
Since singing and now rapping is the current Pacific way to to reach out to today’s generation of young people, the trainer has encouraged the young participants to either sing their message or rap it to get their method of organic farming of their special crop to the wider public.
In other words the young farmers have to add interesting flavour to their messages to electrify their audience to swallow their message.
The workshop does not only train the participants to perform in front of the class but to also post their skills on facebook to capture maximum audience coverage.
