BAREFOOT EDUCATION UPDATES

I am helping to organize a Permaculture Design Certificate Course in Kenya. The course is held from the 5th-18th of December at Nyumbani Village in Kitui with Warren Brush from Quail Springs Permaculture http://www.quailsprings.org/ and local teachers. There are scholarships and discounts available for local students.  Please contact me on elinlovisa@gmail.com for more information.

In June I did a Permaculture Design at CYEC in Nyeri, Kenya,  together with Nicholas Syano from Nyumbani Village. CYEC is a centre for street children and vulnerable children with the aim of becoming a fully fledged ecovillage, providing sustainable vocations to the youth at the centre as part of their ‘exit strategy’ into society. The permaculture design at CYEC was part of this strategy and provides the basis for a three year sustainability plan.  Click here for more information.
