Hardening crabs in floating cages
You can make a cage from bamboo to contain the crabs. Soft crabs must be separated so they do not fight and damage each other. Give each crab half of a tiny fish per day. If the crab has not eaten its food, it is sick and must be removed. In 10 to 15 days, the crabs will have a hard shell and can be sold.
The onion nursery
Onion seedlings need a healthy, loose soil. Add well-aged manure or compost. In the rainy season you need to raise the seedbed so the onion roots will not rot.

This phenomenal production is irrigated with water that is mined, and can never be replaced. The Central Valley used to be a vast wetland. From 1930 to 1970 a network of dams and canals were built to capture snowmelt from the Sierra Madre mountains, for irrigation.

through training videos
On 9 September 2021, Access Agriculture Director for International Development, Paul Van Mele, gave a presentation at the 20th Organic World Congress, which took place digitally and on-site in Rennes, France, 6-10 September. His talk “Spreading organic agricultural practices through training videos” illustrated how digital learning tools and strategic partnerships are crucial to help reach more farmers to transition towards agroecology and organic farming across the global South. The presentation elicited great interest and led to several new exciting partnerships currently being developed, such as with the Intercontinental Network of Organic Farmers' Organisations (INOFO), the Global Alliance for Organic Districts (GAOD) and Regeneration International.
