First works at Budumba

Works were interrupted by the requirement to return home to Northern Kenya however works at Budumba managed to complete 9 of the planned 14 days making a strong start at the site. I asked Paul how they had been received by the neighbours.

At first they’re afraid to come and join me but me as the team leader I just think beyond the curtain and I started applying my knowledge focusing the permaculture principle one, and I ended up winning the villagers and they start coming, joining us both the adult and children, so now they’re understanding the center and they promised me if I went back to Uganda they will call the leader for agriculture to come and meet me. Lastly I clear a good ground for the project.

Meanwhile, this was received today from Mbale and our friends at Mount Elgon Coffee and Honey Co-operative, enjoying the yield from the keyhole bed constructed on an informal workshop led by Paul back in January. Not bad for 2 months growing!
