We're back to work in Uganda after our trip to Malawi and over the last few weeks Benjamin has been busy meeting to organize an upcoming rocket stove training. More on that to come.
Last week though The Red Soil Project had the opportunity to do some teaching in partnership with another permaculture farm in Uganda, Forever Forestry. Benjamin has had a couple of opportunities do outreach training with Forever Forestry and he's learning a lot. As part of this latest 1 week training Benjamin was able to teach 25 students in soil building, swale digging and composting. Benjamin is considered the expert on soil, so he's working with the team at Forever Forestry to design the course material.
As part of the program various trees including moringa, papaya and legume trees will be started to establish community nurseries. Composting and constructing composting toilets will also be part of the training.
