Establishing a "Zimconserve Permaculture centre
About this Campaign
The lack of rain has dramatically reduced agricultural production leading to soaring food prices and more than tripling the number of people who experience food insecurity.The necessity for people to grow their own food has never been more critical.
Permaculture is designed to maximize people's ability to adapt to changing weather.Permaculture is really about relationship - sun and soil - water and air - plants and animals others - and ourselves our relationship as humans to the world around us.
We believe that by teaching permaculture at the ZimConserve Permaculture Centre,we will build responsibility and capacity around unknown climate change for vulnerable people, already living on the edge,who are greatly impacted by these events.
The ZimConserve centre will give the organization tangible presence in the Seke rural community.We have obtained 5 hectares of land from the Manyame rural district authorities.
This site is easily accessible to community members,and will accommodate
a structure with two classrooms,a resource centre,a kitchen, zimConserve offices,a caretaker's cottage, large community vegetable gardens,mushroom growing houses,fish ponds,and several orchards including moringa trees.Moringa is referred to as "nature's perfect plant" and it is extremely potent high nutrient plant that is in great demand both in Africa and Europe.
The structures will be a model for sustainable building using rammed earth technology.
Below is an architect's rendering of the Zimconserve Permaculture centre.It preserves the African style of design while incorporating sustainable building methodologies.We are hoping to begin construction this 2022.
From the outset.ZimConserve was created out of permaculture passion.
ZimConserve Permaculture resource centre will be a highly visible expression of our passion.It will elevate our impact and change lives in rural Zimbabwe communities by enabling people to learn sustainable gardening methods,gain confidence in themselves, and have new knowledge that translates immediately into more resources for their lives.We hope you will invest in this critical next step to our organization.
