The REAL Green Revolution In Africa: Permaculture in Zimbabwe
I met with Julious Piti several times during his world tour last summer. Julious is a Permaculture designer and teacher, organic farmer and conflict facilitator based in Zimbabwe. Julious has been using Permaculture in Africa to restore the health of both land and community. A founding member of the Chikukwa Ecological Land Trust (CELUCT) and now the Director of PORET (Participatory Organic Research Extension and Training), Julious’ work shows that degraded land can be transformed into verdant productive farms and food forests.. Julious’ new organization PORET supports farmers in dry-land areas and works to address hunger, malnutrition, and poverty. In 2007, PORET won the Zimbabwe National Environmental Award.
Julious also works in conflict resolution and helped develop a handbook called The Three Circles of Knowledge; How to Build Constructive Community Relations by Understanding Conflicts in Rural African Communities.
In this podcast interview, The REAL Green Revolution In Africa Julious talks about how he has used Permaculture to nourish the health of the land and people in Zimbabwe.
