My name is Vincent I am one of the badilisha direct sponsorship project recipient.
I have been deeply touched with the content of our weekly trainings at badilisha. I have been lucky to have learnt about deferent techniques of farming and farming methods. Being that permaculture means permanent agriulture, there is a lot of emphasis on design and planning and not using chemicals to control pests and diseases and at the same time, it makes the soil very healthy and sustainable for farming since there is no chemical use.
I have also. Learnt about how the farm can be designed to enhance better water flow and catchment and energy conservation through Swales .the plant leaves are also used for mulching and for compost making to facilitate better and faster crop growth within the farm.
Good mix of plants also helps in pest control and also adding good soil nutrients especially when leguminous plants are incorporated .
MY vision with my farm is to have enough food for our family and also used it to show our people how to grow their food abundantly and in Avery healthy way.
