Kampala, Uganda

by Community Forests International on January 27, 2010

Estelle and I have completed our PDC and we're now making our way to Tanzania, via Kenya.  Overall the course was quite good.  Though we were familiar with much of the information presented, having already studied Permaculture independently for some time, we learned a lot about communicating the principles cross-culturally and applying them in a tropical climate.  Our group design work in particular  helped us to appreciate the obstacles faced by many East African communities and how intelligent design can address virtually all  major problems.

And now the photos we have promised:
