August Malawi Trip!

Today in Malawi, we visited one of the villages that is undergoing a community-wide permaculture project - in short, growing food and enriching the soil without chemical fertilizers and upholding a sense of the environment and climate where you are. So no growing plants needing lots of rain in a desert. This team in Chadika has made a deceptively giant leap. they have a water well, which naturally has spillage from filling buckets and doing laundry. Through F2F permaculture training, now they channel that "gray" water into growing vegetables and bananas throughout the long dry season. Sounds simple, but it takes a community acting together to make this happen. Just a small example of making communities self-reliant.
