Our Food Forest Project began in Kenya in 2014, and was called the Africa KiVo Project, began. To date, we have planted 1900 trees, including guava, custard apples and avocado, and have started a permaculture project at the Mulingana Primary School in Kangundo, Kenya, with the help of our Project Manager David Mutinda and the Kamba community of women and students. We will continue to plant trees at five more schools in Kenya as we continue with Phases II & III in 2018, by establishing KiVo Green Garden Clubs where pupils will be trained on various permaculture practices, involving composting, water harvesting and pest control methods. We also document the dance-songs that were traditionally used to bless crops, and empower women and girls to start cottage industries based on tree products and sales from surplus crops. We follow the model of Wangari Maathai who started the GreenBelt Movement in 1978.
