Title: Best practice experience in farmer discussion groups – Development of an advisors handbook

The peer-to-peer learning platform that farmer discussion groups offer is proven effective in knowledge transfer and increasing farm performance. The extent to which groups successfully function and the benefit farmers derive from being part of them largely hinges on the proficiency of the facilitator. This project brings together best practices in group facilitation from Ireland and abroad, for the purpose of developing a handbook that will enable the development of new and experienced advisors’ competencies in farmer discussion group facilitation.
