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
