    Description

    Hi there future volunteer

    We are permaculture consultants and regenerative designers setting up a demonstration site on the Kenyan coastal waters of the Indian Ocean. We hope to start running courses and workshops from here in the near future and use permaculture as an empowering tool for our neighbouring communities.

    We are also organic farmers who combine an array of permaculture aspects such as natural and organic farming as well as natural pest control remedies.

    We are growing lush edible gardens, food forests, moringa orchards and are looking for people to help us in this venture, to live in harmony with nature, gardening, building fences etc, harvesting, making preserves from excess produce, seed saving, making compost, and lots more! We also have chickens, ducks, rabbits, guinnea fowls and Tuzo, our Jack Russell dog.

    We are hoping to start building using natural building techniques, as well as a cob oven.

    We truly believe in the power of permaculture. Come and be part of it!
