Kinesi Village Farmers Transition to Permaculture

Project: Kinesi Orphans Permaculture Project

Posted by Monica Marshall about 8 years ago

Update: 30 families will be supported to develop private family plots.

We are in the beginning stages of the second phase of the permaculture project, where 30 families will be supported to develop private family plots. The first 14 families selected are all experienced farmers active in the Kinesi plot. Each has 2.5 to 5 acres of land ready for cultivation and is able to contribute something to their own projects like manure, trees or animals.

Most of the plots will demonstrate dry land farming, and have their main focus on water harvesting, living fences, organic crop production of staple foods, seed multiplication, agro forestry, mixed cropping and organic pest management. These family plots will be a living lesson that can help others broaden their vision of possibilities.

Read about some of these families on the Global Resource Alliance Facebook page.

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.
