In September 2016 ARK together with World Vision Armenia realized a project aimed at promoting permaculture ideas and practice in Kapan Region. Permaculture as the most progressive type of sustainable organic agriculture begins with landscaping to create most comfortable conditions for growing plants.
Permacuture garden beds
In climate and landscape conditions of Kapan Region the created garden beds are to keep water and humus, protect soil from wind erosion and make a good balance of light and shadow. With constriction material provided by World Vision, ARK created these very garden beds in the ARK Camp not far from Kapan. In agriculture season of 2017 ARK plans to share this innovative practice with farmers and youth of the region. We plan to hold the workshops in the pavilion built by the construction material from World Vision.

We express our gratitude to World Vision Armenia for their support and hope for further fertile cooperation.
