Volunteer at Kakayando organic farm in Kenya – My name is Felix Akicho, I’m the younger son in our family of two brothers and four sisters. We live in the western part of Kenya. I’m a community permaculture leader and my mission is to bring permaculture fully to my community since we are a group of small farmers facing changing weather patterns and relative isolation. I started farming in the year 2014 and I have joined permaculture training that was hosted in our county.
The focus of our small community is “transformative learning” we like to work, learn and live together with our volunteers engaging in daily, weekly and monthly reviews about our learnings and transformation to a more sustainable community and as an example for others. Now, I would love to welcome our volunteers to come to join Kakayando organic farm so we to learn about permaculture and organic farm as well as our cultural activities.
