Rebuilding Kusamala's Permaculture Centre
October 18, 2020
Five vehicles burnt, inputs for communities stolen and/or burnt to ashes, years of resources destroyed.
The idea of Kusamala was born in 2008 when members of the Permaculture Network in Malawi and Nature’s Gift Limited put our resources together to design a permaculture centre. In 2009, together we launched Kusamala (then known as Nature’s Gift Permaculture) on a slice of the 650-hectare estate and hosted 300 guests at Malawi’s first International Permaculture Convergence and Conference.
Kusamala has grown because of years of love and sweat by sooooooo many people — now, 12 years later it was razed.
Thanks to all who have reached out with support as a result of our social media messages. Every day we’ve been assessing, grieving, processing and planning.
