Mtwapa Permaculture Demonstration Site

  On the beautiful shores of the Kenyan coast. In the ever-growing town of Mtwapa, we started implementing a dream. It all started late 2014 on our 3 acre demonstration site.    The property was riddled with poor sandy soils, poor water catchment and a poor ecological management.  Following the permaculture principles we have started regenerating the landscape and harmonising different key elements of our system to enhance soil regeneration, flow of nutrients & energy.      The current focus on the site is the development of a tree nursery dealing with specialised permaculture species, including grafted exotic fruit trees, nitrogen fixers, indigenous trees and super foods.    Additionally, we have also implemented the following:     ·           Food Forests     ·           Fully Functional Drip Irrigation System     ·           Hugel Kultur Beds     ·           Green House and Animal Construction Methods     ·           Chicken Tractors     ·           Bee Keeping     ·           Swales on Contour     ·           Banana Circles     ·           Intensive Kitchen Gardens     ·           We Keep Chickens, Ducks and Rabbits     ·           Vermiculture     ·           Moringa
