The last FFS session(s) will be used to make plans for the next season. We want the farmers to continue working and learning as a group.
The last FFS session should not be the end, but it is the beginning of our next season activities.
If FFS facilitators will not be available for a second season, then one or more leading farmers can take their role and become the facilitators during the next season.
