A greenhouse training program has started in Osmaniye, a city located in southern Turkey and populated by Syrian immigrants. The program is funded by the United Nations Food Agriculture Organization and the training program will be held in 6 different groups.

The courses have both practical and theoretical components and practical parts of the course take place in a 1 hectare greenhouse of the Institute where Syrian immigrants will learn how to grow tomato, green pepper, eggplant and cucumber.
