Last chance to join us this coming December in Kenya for a special
Permaculture Design Course offering with teacher Warren Brush from Quail
Springs Permaculture and True Nature Design!  We have a few spaces still
available for international students to be a part of this unique course at
Nyumbani Village outside of Nairobi.  


Nyumbani Village is a place that offers so much to the local people by
taking in, housing, feeding and training orphaned children and elders of
people who have died from HIV related illnesses in one of the poorest
districts in Kenya.  If you are interested in or currently working in
International Development, this course will give you hands-on experience in
the theory and application of Permaculture.


Nyumbani Village is an ecovillage that was started in 2005 to provide a
supportive community for 1,000 HIV/AIDS orphans to live, grow, learn
important life skills and eventually reintegrate back into their home
communities as successful Kenyan leaders.  The Village practices
permaculture principles to integrate homes, vegetable gardens, forestry,
animal husbandry, water harvesting catchments and conservation, waste
recycling to build soils, schools and polytechnics, income generating and
social activities in a natural environment of 1,000 acres.  Nyumbani Village
is also an important employment, education, health, and social center to
residents from the surrounding community
