How to Participate

 

One of the Goals for all three schools, is:

  • To introduce a permaculture programme at the school; such a project would ensure sustainability in the community. 

    This would include growing trees, maize, beans, rice and vegetables. We could also include some livestock in the project as well (perhaps dairy cows, sheep, chickens, sows)

Buduma Primary School

Buduma Primary School is located in the town of Buduma, and is 20 km away from the Bukati Primary school in the opposite direction from the Bwaliro Primary School. Funding started in 2011.

Buduma Primary School is the third school that is being helped by the Children of Bukati project.
Buduma School was given a permaculture project that Michael Nickels, the permaculture specialist, has now implemented (in 2012).
That project was made possible in part by COB and also with money that Michael Nickels raised on his own.
The crops and livestock at Buduma are doing very well.

The following photos and commentary are the first we have done for Buduma Primary School.  The photos were taken in August 2012 by Natalie Carter, from the University of Guelph; Guelph, Ontario.
