This project is implemented by Agrisud International and its partner the Norsys Foundation. It is carried out within the framework of the program of safeguarding and development of the palm grove of Marrakech carried by the Mohammed VI Foundation for the environmental protection.

Testimony of a participant in the “agroecology” tour:

“Delighted to have met the farmers, a well thought out tour (good logic and progression in the presentation). I also enjoyed traveling on a concrete field with real involved families … and with a cup of tea, it was the cherry on top! ”
