Kajulu Hills Eco-Villages Project Concept https://kajuluhillsecovila.wixsite.com/2020regionsbordering/team
Restoration and extension of indigenous and agroecological ecosystems for food security
Our work includes free workshops and training courses, including online, offsite and onsite training to children, youth, pupils, students, people with special needs and refugees. Since 2016 we have trained more than 100 community members, 155 refugees, 30 IDP’s and trained 18 new permaculture teachers. At each course the students installed food systems and indigenous seed banks, and were taught how to maintain them.
We have willing community groups already engaged in farming activities and different implementing team members with different skills and registered community groups which are part of National Permaculture Practitioners group with 44 members, 48 groups with 534 males, 916 females and a total 1,400 people from 10 Counties in Kenya during this initiative.
