In December of this last year, Never Ending Food made a few staff changes. One of our interns, Howard Zamula, was accepted for a full-time position with the Lilongwe Wildlife Center as an Education Officer, and another of our interns, Hardwell Kaniye, was promoted to the position of Permaculture Manager. These changes made it possible to welcome aboard two new interns to the Never Ending Food team! As of December 2013, Kusala Biswick (brother of our former Permaculture Manager, Luwayo Biswick) and Emmanuel Chilonga (Form 4 graduate and neighbor of NEF) have been accepted and have been helping to implement this year’s rainy season designs. Working hand-in-hand with our new Manager, Hardwell, has given them both a chance to gain both experience as well as knowledge.
It has come to our attention that a Permaculture Design Course (PDC) is being offered in March of this year at Butterfly Space in Nkhata Bay, Malawi. This would be a great opportunity to get these new interns into to a formalized Permaculture training and qualified as Permaculture Designers. The course is being taught by a wonderful Permaculture Designer and good friend of ours, Leiza Swennen, the co-owner of Lukwe Permaculture Camp. The cost for the course is $600 US per person, which includes course-fees, room and board. We will also have to raise a bit of additional money to cover transport costs to and from the training. If enough money can be raised, we will also send our new Manager, Hardwell, to the course to help him hone his skills and give him additional exposure to new ideas and teaching ideas.
