Join us for a master composting course and learn how to create healthy soils.
LPC’S partnership with Maasai women groups revolves around about Permaculture, land regeneration, building using natural materials, water harvesting & soil fertility, how to control soil erosion and integrated farming as well as bee keeping in an effort to promote food security, combat effects of climate change and do away with gender disparities in our Maasai community. This year we are delighted to have Our friend and Master Composter run a composting course at Naatum women group to teach this Maasai women about soil fertility, making dry compost and compost teas.

Composting mimics a process constantly taking place in nature. Composting is extremely valuable to any farm since a good compost is a proper blend for nature’s elements including air, water, fire and earth. When these elements are kept in balance, millions of microorganisms including bacterial, insects and other soil biota can break down plants and animal waste into nutrient rich material in weeks. The general agreement is that compost need to be added to the fields at the beginning of each crop cycle and continued progressively so as to build the soil. This is done because compost provides a balanced nutrition to the soil as well as improving its physical structures whilst stimulating the biological life of the soil improving overall plant health. LPC offers a 2weeks intensive composting course at KES 40,000(this fee includes meals,camping & certification but excludes transport to and from LPC). This year we held our composting course with Peter Ash in July. The training was also extended to one of our Women group’s
Five day Advanced Earthworks Resiliency Course with renowned International Facilitator, Warren Brush. This course is primarily for those who have already taken a Permaculture Design Certification (PDC) and want to get more insight on earthworks. The course takes place in the Northern Laikipia region at Naatum Women’s group, a group located in a remote and severly degraded area with huge problems of soil erosion. This being most vulnerable of groups due to harsh living conditions! According to Warren Brush, who has worked in challenging areas around the World, including the Kalahari desert, this is one of the badly degraded areas he has come acrossYou will have the chance to follow “accompagner” the renowned international facilitator Warren Brush to demonstrate together the incredible potential this site has! Come and do what seems impossible: fully transform these arid lands into a productive and sustainable site for the women. Don’t miss out this super special course with Warren and all the community!
