Since its inception, OTEPIC has made great progress in helping local people integrate proven organic methods into small-scale food production. Over 2,000 participants from approximately 25 community groups have been trained in ecological farming practices and have integrated this knowledge in their farms and gardens. OTEPIC has also promoted numerous grassroots initiatives such as growing portable gardens, making charcoal briquettes, building solar food driers, advocating for humane animal treatment, educating about nutrition for HIV/AIDS, and organizing trash clean-up days.

In 2009, OTEPIC developed “The Learning Garden”  in Mitume, a small demonstration garden used for hands-on education and organic food production.  A committed group of young volunteers care for the garden and reap the harvest.  A second, larger demonstration farm is now under development in Bidii which will be the future home of an educational center for ecological agriculture and sustainable technologies.
