'There is one, and only one solution, and we have almost no time to try it. We must turn all our resources to repairing the natural world, and train all our young people to help. They want to, we need to give them this last chance to create forests, soils, clean waters, clean energies, secure communities, stable regions, and to know how to do it from hands on experience.'

Joyce Nankaya So far we've assisted Joyce and her church women's group in birthing a reforestation project in Mbirikani using the trees grown in the nursery of the One Heart Farm school. Joyce came to us and has been a pure example of sheer force, determination and forward thinking.

'Production without destruction' Extraordinary happenings.  Hosting a 3 day Permaculture Visioning workshop with the local Maasai farmers of Namelok Kenya. Build it they 'might' come. Roughly 40 something in attendance thus far and without lures or bribes. Listening to problems and offering solutions. Harmonious relationships between community, land and animal being the ongoing focus for all involved. #overpopulation #lossofhabitat #animilhumanconflict #water #water #water  We've a long road ahead. @biglifeafrica #oneheartfarmkenya  #community #harmony  #permaculture #regenerativeagriculture #savetheelephants - link in bio to support

FINALLY got these two Permaninjas to unite. Joseph Ntunyoi @prikenya and Paul Muindi. A Local Maasai collaboration, taking symbiotic farming and existence to the next level. The will and knowhow thrives within the people themselves. Their land. Their mama. Their pride. Their right. Namelok. A barren village at the base of Mt Kilimanjaro. Occupied by the Maasai. If a shift can be made here. It can be made anywhere. The task is grand. The hearts are alive. Sometimes it feels like herding Kittens to align this magic. But, the angels are with us for now. God speed, tenacious ones. And thank you all #oneheartfarmkenya Donors.

Thanks to the donations of 118 people (the ones that said they wanted to help AND ACTUALLY FOLLOWED THROUGH), #oneheartfarmkenya has reached its goal of $20k on crowdrise.com in only a week. Now 700 students will have 100% toxin free, nutritionally dense food everyday. And 2000 farmers will have that same opportunity. The campaign is still open for donations so check out the link in my bio or head on over to Rhona's official page (@iamrhonamitra) and follow the link there. This woman is truly amazing and she & the lovely people she is helping deserve all the support they can get. So go and give what you can. Even if it's only $10 here and there, it adds up. **The above numbers were provided by Rhona in her recent post**

My Permaculture Pioneer Paul and I having a cheeky cuppa tea walking through the town of Mbirikani this time last year strategizing the future of One Heart Farm.  A year later The farm is now successfully feeding and teaching 700 kids and is supplying delicious organic veg to a local safari lodge with the surplus 馃挌馃憡馃従 The blueprint is ready to be lifted and implemented to the greater community of Maasai farmers in the region, whom, as a result of ungodly droughts have been forced into agriculture as opposed to the traditional cattle farming. The damage to the land and the conflict with wildlife, especially elephants has become desperate due to flood irrigating and the use of toxic chemicals.  Permaculture is one possible solution in aiding to strike a balance between the community. TBD 馃挌 So grateful to @biglifefoundation for embracing this idea and even more chuffed to have found a diamond like Paul to create the oasis and be the example 馃挌 Ultimately humbled that by taking a chance this was able to come to light.

Finally Rain in Kenya and life for One Heart Farm and food for the bellies of the babes of Enkijape Primary School. Every day more impressed by what this gem of an earth wizard Paul Muindi has managed to pull off through the very worst of times. I will find a way to clone you Paul.

Gladys Joseph- deputy principal-farmer.  Looking forward to this long journey ahead.  If One Heart Farm is a success at the school.... There is hope that it can be a fulcrum that this community needs to create a shift towards and more sustainable, symbiotic future.  Free of animal/human conflict. Free of toxic food. And free of toxic soil.  2,000+ farmers. 2 million acres. No small feat but you have to start somewhere.

These two Jedi's. Paul has been working on the 'Big Life' garden feeding the Rangers since Feb, and as a result of its success is now working with Eric on Enkijape School (adjacent) literally in the middle of nowhere and malnutrition is at a level that is beyond imaginable. Paul is an incredible permaculture farmer and beautiful soul. The two of them have become best mates and have been working with the kids teaching permaculture and helping them grow enough food so there will hopefully be no more hungry bellies. Permaculture is now part of their curriculum and God willing, will organically spread back to their communities and villages. #oneheartfarmkenya 鈽濔煆匡笍馃挌馃悩馃尡 #savetheelephants #biglifefoundation @stackingfunctions #farmersrock #permacultute #farmwithyoutheartlifewillfollow #100thmonkeyeffect

Report from Kaswanga Primary School Garden Project-馃挌 10 months ago I made a call to a farmer in Kenya who was employing permaculture methods on the Island of Rusinga. 2 months later I flew out to meet him. On that trip he introduced me to the headmaster of the local Primary School, we discussed the pervading issue of malnourishment and lack of food for the children. Nothing new. They were holding a fundraiser to feed a small percentage of the pupils who had no food at home, Ugali and beans for a year =Zero nutrition =Tired apathetic Kids. In that conversation a deal was made, I would cover the cost if he would consider a more long term sustainable proposition, the growing of a permaculture garden/food forest on the school premises. A garden where the children can learn to farm sustainably, grow their own food and eat nutritionally dense food for breakfast and lunch. After many a long stare into my eyes, he agreed. The children have been so excited, but It's taken a while to find the right farmer to work with them, someone who really cares, but finally Joshua came along. It was 100% imperative that the farmer be a local Kenyan, not another 'white-faced-do-gooder'. This is THEIR farm. THEIR food. They will take this knowledge back to their families and hopefully pass it on for years to come. Farmed together with 'One Heart', the permaculture ethos is alive and growing in the motherland 馃挌 So far the kids have planted a variety of traditional vegetables, cow peas, black night shade mrenda, dek, moringa, cassava, sweet potatoes. Sending them all the love and support until I get back out there. Couldn't be more proud of these tenacious hearts. Now pray for rain!! 馃挌 #oneheartfarmkenya #plantwithyourheartlifewillfollow #permaculture #community #plantmedicine #kenya
Phase 1- Reports from our magic garden in Kenya. In just 9 weeks the half acre #permaculture plot is already feeding the Maasai rangers in Amboseli national park. Cow pea leaves apparently a big hit :) Within a couple more months this whole site will be thriving and will hopefully serve as an #abundant, #sustainable example for the 2,000+ Maasai farmers who are in great conflict with the wildlife and the environment competing for water as well as abusing toxic pesticides. I'm so proud of our farmer Paul (legend) and Big Life Foundation for supporting this venture. Can't wait to get back for phase 2! 馃挌 #ihaveafarminafrica #farmersrock #simplify #symbiosis #solutions #community #plantmedicine #oneheartfarmkenya 'When it is understood that one loses joy and happiness in the attempt to possess them, the essence of natural farming will be realized.

馃挌 Just got word that the fencing and gate at 'One Heart Farm' went up yesterday and the rainwater catchment is in place. The kids have cleared the site of plastic and weeds and are ready to start farming their magical food Forest. This is where it begins. By the next time I visit these little rockstar farmers will have created a blueprint for all schools in Africa and will be farming and eating nutritionally dense, super-ninja plant medicine.  This is a dream. #permaculture #permaninjas #symbiosis #freedom #tia #foodrevolution #africarising 馃尳馃崒馃崊馃崰馃崓馃崋馃崘馃崐馃崗馃崜馃崏 #oneheartfarmkenya #farmwithyourheartlifewillfollow
It is entirely possible that a little ember of magic was set alight today, as we sat with the principal of Rusinga Primary school and proposed the possibility of introducing Permaculture Farming and a garden to his school for his children. An almighty long-shot and a redundant conversation with most. A lot of these kids go to school with empty bellies and no chance of getting food at home for lunch. So, the concept of growing nutritionally dense food on the premises and making it available to all students and teachers thankfully made complete seance to the principal. And thus- as of today- 'One Heart Farm' has been born. The knowledge of this type of farming will bleed back into the the community and nullify the desire to go to big city's like Nairobi to search for dead-end jobs resulting in all levels of sadness. The goal...reinstate a sense of pride in growing ones own food in a sustainable, abundant chemical-free way. To take care of your family and your community without polluting your environment. Create your own medicine. THEN decide whether you want to join the rat race. We're completely beside ourselves that this is now a reality. Funds are in place and The fence to keep the goats and cows out go up next week :) Stoked for this to be a beautiful blueprint for things to come..... #farmwithyourheartlifewillfollow #oneheartfarmkenya #permababies
