Check out his project at  <http://www.otepic.org/> http://www.otepic.org/ and see bio below.


Philip Odhiambo Munyasia, the founder of OTEPIC, grew up in Mitume as the youngest of 8 brothers and had the rare opportunity to visit a high school. Afterwards, he started to teach people in his neighborhood how to grow their own food and improve their situation. 

Eager to learn more, he was given the opportunity to do an internship in the Permaculture farm. 


Also training at “Ecology Action” in California. small-scale agricultural system — GROW BIOINTENSIVE® Sustainable Mini-Farming



Later he took part in the Global Campus training program in Tamera, Portugal where he became familiar with Holzer´s permaculture. To the surprise of his friends and clients, he has returned to his poor neighborhood after every visit abroad, and has not spent the money he raised for private purposes. Instead, he has developed a deep wish to change the situation of his people and has acquired ideas for how to do it.

In 2008, he 

founded OTEPIC and created a team which has been teaching people, initiatives, groups and communities to use Permaculture as an alternative way to gain food security and to conserve nature and biodiversity.
