THE STORY:

Presenting Kaïra Kunda, Home of Peace, Casamance's farm-to-table restaurant's, premier permaculture workshop. My husband Momo, a chef, and his best friend, Abdoulaye, a permaculturist, and I, a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, have teamed up to create a sustainable, renewable, and edible resource for Southwestern Senegal's stunning Casamance region.

We've recently purchased a one hectare parcel just outside the coastal town of Kafountine where Momo and Abdoulaye have been helping out at Abdoulaye's father's ecolodge for the past four years. Kafountine is the ideal area for the farm's installation as there is great interest in resource conservation through the current organization of an EcoVillage.

Your support will fund Kaïra Kunda's first training workshop. Momo says that rather than owners, we are protectors of the land and its river. In protecting it, we need to reclaim the soil from the jungle in which it sits. Rather than using the more common and quick slash and burn techniques, we want to use this opportunity to teach community members the foundational methods of permaculture in the creation of the farm in a way that works with, instead of against, the natural landscape.

In lieu of a budget, we offer you an invitation to join our pitch-in or potluck picnic. Here's what you can bring to the table: Watering buckets: $25 Seeds: $50 Live plants: $75 Meals: $100 Tools: $250 Tents: $500 Building materials : $1000 The idea is to pick a pitch or choose one of your own. With the workshop coming in the next couple of months, we will be getting started right away so let's get growing!
