HortiMED has started a collaboration with Wikifarmer to work together towards empowering farmers to develop sustainable and resilient farming systems. HortiMED and Wikifarmer will maximise the impact of both inititiaves through mutual cooperation and knowledge exchange.
Wikifarmer is a worldwide collaboration with the mission of empowering and educating farmers across the world. It is an Organization with Social Impact, leading a transformation in Agriculture and Food Systems by focusing on free Education, Sustainability, and forcing Transparency, Accountability, Security, and Honesty, across the food supply chain.
To accomplish that, Wikifarmer offers an open Library with educational material covering a wide range of agricultural topics, translated into numerous languages (more than 14), to be accessible to everyone and help farmers make fact-based decisions on how to produce sustainably high-quality products. In 2021 more than 5 million unique visitors from more than 180 countries have read our material online.
At the same time, Wikifarmer believes that all farmers in the world should be able to showcase their production, set a price for their products, and compete fairly in the local or the global marketplace. To strengthen farmers’ position in today’s competitive landscape, Wikifarmer introduces them to e-commerce, helps them create a profile online, presents and translates their products and matches them with buyers. Wikifarmer Market Place is accessible to all farmers and buyers (for B2B and B2C transactions) worldwide and is translated into 5 languages (English, Spanish, Italian, French, and Greek).
