Permaculture Explorers: Above the Line held its first Permaculture class yesterday. We started with what is Permaculture and then introduced some of the principles of Permaculture. We are using a teach back model of training, so the women were already up in front of the group teaching back what they had just learned. This builds confidence and gives them hands on learning. There was lots of laughter, singing and dancing. Fun is a critical element of everything we do!
We have two young children who are part of the group. They provide high entertainment value. Next week we start the business training, and will alternate weeks between being out in their gardens doing practical work and being in the classroom learning how to develop their own enterprise to bring extra money into their households. Our goal is to raise them all above the line of extreme poverty.
No amount is too small or too large! Thank you.
