Javan K. Bernakevitch takes us on a trip to see one of Michael Nickels many permaculture design projects. This one in North Kenya turning a desert homestead into a food rich productive landscape while helping the owner restore her pride in her land in the process.

Thanks so much for sharing this!

I first heard Javan on Diego's Permaculture Voices podcast. (In this podcast, he speaks eloquently about "finding your niche" and "learning to fail better.")

If this video fascinates you, apparently Javan takes students to Kenya every year.
 
He's giving us the slip! Quick! Grab this tiny ad!
