         The Community

executive structure

IRCCA, it’s executive and members, are all farmers from the community it serves. The organisation, established in the first instance to act as an information hub to both maintain and enhance the existing agricultural knowledge pool: also intends to exploit collective bargaining power by establishing co-operative sourcing of supplies and produce. With the savings made they hope to establish a scholarship fund as well as provide for the organisation.

The organisation similarly has access to community land which they intend to develop as a community farm for trialling new crops and techniques as well as a training centre and social hub.

Additionally and separate to the scholarship fund IRCCA hopes to establish a micro-financing venture. Initially to assist members own projects but also with the intention of developing an outreach and extension program with other communities and external agricultural advisers.
