Permaculture Resources for Places of Refuge Conference

Greetings to attendees of the Places of Refuge Conference. I am sharing a few online resources to help those interested in permaculture design learn a bit more about the practical applications.

Here is a video on what swales can do in the landscape:

There is so much more to permaculture design, but this is a good start to understanding some of the possibilities!

Nearing our return to the US

Happy belated New Year! We rang in the New Year by trying to find a rat that was scratching about in our bedroom. Some things are a little different here! We have one week left of our 3-months in Uganda, and as such we have been discussing the transition back. We are going to miss our friends here, the weather, and the deliciously fresh mango, pineapple, and avocado. We are glad to be returning to our family and friends back in the Midwest, but are not as excited to return into the middle of winter!

The last week is a busy one, as I(Grant) will be teaching a 2-day basic permaculture workshop at the Connect Africa Hub the 20th and 21st. I am eager to share what I have learned so far about permaculture, and to spread it's values and influence to both Uganda and Kenya, as we will have students from both East African nations!

I will be posting pictures on this blog of our time here when we return to the US, but it has not worked to do so over here. Take care and God bless.
