[12:21, 5/24/2020] Godfrey – Kumi PDC17: Principle 5 of Permaculture states; Use and Value Renewable Resources and Services.
Our team yesterday shared practically this principle as were we were setting up and constructing a local greenhouse using locally available resources.
When complete this will be used to propagate fruit, shade trees and vegetable seedlings.
The poles used will provide canopy since they will sprout. We intend also to plant a few passionfruits around the poles that will provide shelter for the seedlings.
Use of IPM to fight plant pests and diseases is one of our culture as Eastern Uganda Permaculture Organization. Yesterday part of our team mixed red pepper, pineapple, avocado, yellow bananas, garlic, pumpkin, molasses to form a solution in a 20 litre jerrycan to be fermented for two weeks before use.
