Update on progress at Gocha Primary

Project: Strawberry Fields Eco Lodge

Posted by Alex McCausland about 8 years ago

We made another visit to Gocha Primary to check on progress since we began implementataion there in July. Results were surprising...

We made another visit to Gocha Primary on September 10th to see if they had progressed with their garden. I really wanted to get a photo of water in the tank. The problem is that every time it has rained they have been immediately using the water, not for their garden but for mixing mud to re-wall their class rooms. This is actually fantastic as their class rooms were in a pitiful condition and this is a fantastic outcome of us having built the tank at Gocha. When we previously visited the school piles of walling clay were sat around the school yard doing very little. They had been there for a long time as they had even started to get eroded away. In the last few weeks though the community have wasted no time in using up almost all of that mud at top speed, because they have water to mix it with!

They have re-walled 5 class rooms on the interior only and 6 on the exterior as-well so a total of 11. A quick calculation: about 15 loads of mud have been mixed, and to mix each load twice requires about 600L of water so a total of 9,000L, which means the tank has now filled up full twice and a little bit more as the tank has 4000L capacity.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

pri_teacher

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
