Empowerment through Permaculture

BEFORE AND AFTER

We began the ARK garden project during the worst drought in living memory. As Nontzikelelo (our trained permaculturist) lives in Zastron in the Free State it was the natural place to start. The Free State province, is one of four regions declared disaster areas as the drought dries up South Africa's heartland bringing with it failed crops and acute water shortages.
