the old mombasa road farm project that lit the fire …. a 4 month experiment in alternative farming using local materials … led to this path after the realization that being able to grow food without soil was a powerful gift.

these are some pics from the project in kenya 3 years ago  … there are hotspots on the image that link to some project pictures – see if you can find:

  • apiary made from mud and beehives.
  • greenhouse made with local materials
  • rapid compost bins
  • vermicompost
  • double digging and gravity fed irrigation
  • squabs and poultry
  • river beds
  • nursery
  • termites
  • and others.

some links are stale .. will soon fix these
