Greetings of peace and blessings from Ghana, West Africa.
I am an American expatriate living in Ghana and married to an expatriate from the ruling class of Burkina Faso, West Africa. I have done permaculture my whole life, but it never had a name until I found it.
Growing things has always been my passion. I started my first outdoor garden at the age of nine when my mother was tired of knocking over my bean plants in the window inside the house. I then started composting- a trick I learned from my grandfather who showed me the true value in building soil. I've always been a greenie too. I was born in the Pacific Northwest, but since the invasion of the Republicans from California and the Boeing take over, the area became too expensive and full of people who just don't understand why I want to have chickens roaming around. So, West Africa is the place for me. You can find my blog here: www.newindustryschoolghana.wordpress.com where all things Ghana I experience are now posted. I am teaching school here now and enjoy the atmosphere and love of the people who appreciate knowledge and learning new things. I teach english, math, science, permaculture, upcycling, baking, a little needlecrafting and health. I have many projects planned for the future, so if you would like to help out and see the fruits of your help be multiplied ten times and more, please contact me. There are many many ways to help in this world. See my quote below. No I am not the first person from Ghana to be a permie. There is another man here in the Northern side of Ghana who has a Permaculture Institute. Besides that: Remember to love each other and spread the word about Permaculture. Our future isn't set in stone: it is set in soil. Peace and Love, Amber Samandulugu
