    Driving slowly around Southern Africa from July 2019 - October 2019.

    Looking for projects with a mix of: community engagement, environmentally friendly farming/growing, off-grid systems, joie-de-vivre, experimentation.

    Projects I always enjoy:
    - composting systems (kitchen waste + garden waste = black gold)
    - soil amendment (mulch, wood chips, straw, compost etc) + mulching
    - worm farming (to produce organic fertilizer)
    - growing from seed (salads, perennials, medicinal plants, shrubs, trees)
    - propagation (from cuttings, air layering, grafting)
    - hydroponics (no pump Kratky type methods, or NFT)
    - upcycling / downcycling / repurposing
    - basic carpentry (building raised beds, planters, shelving units etc)
    - location-based closed loop systems
    - community sports
