The 12-day Permaculture Design Course (PDC), which was held at Kusamala Institute of Agriculture and Ecology, has just come to a close. Malawi now has 6 new certified Permaculture Designers who are eager to put their skills to the test. On the final day of the course each participant presented the maps and designs that they had been working on for the past two weeks. These designs ranged from personal residential, health centers and hospitals, to the designing of entire communities. After the presentations the participants looked at creating ‘action plans’ for implementation of 1-month, 6-months, and 12-months activities. This time frame will carry them through a full seasonal cycle of Malawi’s rainy/dry season.
Never Ending Food wishes all the participants the very best in implementing their designs and in their efforts to make Malawi a more sustainable, healthy, profitable, and well-nourished place to live!
