I’m adding the following clips as a positive supplement to the preceding post. I think it’s important to see that positive work is happening, and that GMOs are not only not needed, but they are a definite threat to these excellent efforts. Permaculturists working, or intending to work, in Kenya could potentially find ways to network with organisations like these, and to offer extra design tools to further strengthen their efforts.

The first video is from the Grow Biointensive Agricultural Center of Kenya (G-BIACK), who look to be doing some great on-the-ground work to educate and transform Kenyan communities and help them return to more resilient, affordable and healthy agricultural and community systems.

This second clip, from The Haller Foundation, will be especially appreciated by permaculturists — it’s a fantastic video show-casing some excellent permaculture action, also in Kenya:

This third series is from Excellent Development in Kenya, also working appropriately and successfully to transform Kenyan lives without undermining their future resiliency:

    Craig,

    Thanks for posting this. I’ll hopefully be seeing Simon Maddrell from Excellent Development next week. Good stuff.

    Loved watching these films. There seems to be much more positive news about than even a couple of years ago.

    Thanks for the posting about our work! Just to clarify, Excellent is based in the UK and the projects we support in Kenya are currently implemented through our partner, the Africa Sand Dam Foundation based in Mtito Andei.

    The videos showed that through empowering people with knowledge and practical skills they control their destiny, making them reliant on themselves for survival. Sustainability is the key to the future, everywhere.
