Reduce your watering costs, while feeding your soil and increasing your yield this dry season, by joining us on a very hands on three-day composting course at Laikipia Permaculture Centre, this February 16th – 18th! Don’t miss this chance!

 

 

The Nitty-Gritty Details

Who: Partnering with PRI Kenya is Permaculture expert and Founder of LPC Joseph Lentunyoi and his team at LPC. Joseph has over thirteen years of practicing and teaching Organic Farming and Permaculture, and founded the now lush and green LPC from a then dry and degraded piece of land.

What: During the classroom lectures, Joseph will introduce you to Permaculture and show you how composting fits in it. You will learn the biology of composting and really get into why composting matters in terms of plant nutrition, soil health and water retention. You will understand the fundamentals of selecting the right composting techniques and ratios.

Outdoors will be where you’ll spend most of the time while getting your hands busy into vermicomposting, hot composting and the 14 day compost. Learn how to build composting bins, use the finished products and also how to take it further by teaching others to compost.

Where: The course will take place at Laikipia Permaculture Center (LPC), which stands not far away from the majestic Mt. Kenya. The now green LPC currently stands as a true Permaculture demonstration site and increasingly a Permaculture learning Centre

The PRI Kenya team will then send you the payment details for the fee of  KSH 22, 500, which will cover your camping, meals and course fee on site.
