What's New For Refarmers in East Africa?
We're sure you all have missed hearing about what our Refarmers are up to in East Africa! We have taken a bit of a break from starting new projects but we never stopped learning!
Patrick Paul Kidega, our project manager is currently in Rusinga Island, Kenya at a Syntropic Agro-Forestry course with teacher Roland van Reenen.
Patrick and Roland are planning a Syntropic Agro-Forestry course in Kitgum, Uganda in September. The 6-day course will be free for the community and offered to anybody interested in teaching and implementing permaculture and syntropic principles.
Thanks so much to our friends Abundant Earth Foundation for sponsoring this course and for bringing Roland and Patrick together at the virtual Soil Not Oil Conference (see recording below)!
Patrick has come to Kenya from Kitgum, to be trained in Syntropic Agro-Forestry and also to help teach all that he has learned through Refarmers' Grandmothers Kitchen Garden Project.
