Abstract

This publication integrates theory and practical work arising from courses in Farming Systems and Farmer Participatory Research held at the Institute of Natural Resources and associated institutions in KwaZulu-Natal during 1996 and 1997. The courses were conducted as part of a project supported by the UK. Government's Department for International Development and managed by the UK Natural Resources Institute (NRI). Objectives of this publication are 1) to provide reference material in Farming Systems and Farmer Participatory Research for interested audiences in KwaZulu-Natal and elsewhere; 2) by integrating theory and practice, to demonstrate how the principles, approaches and methods of FSRJFPR can be applied to real situations; 3) to record the situation, suggestions and priorities of rural and peri-urban families in Vulindlela District, as recorded by course participants; 4) to provide a springboard of information for further development initiatives in Vulindlela and elsewhere in KwaZulu-Natal; 5) to present the Urban Agriculture workshop held in Sobantu Village as a case study of participatory workshop methods.
