  1. I’m privileged to work in tribal areas in South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal province. Our organisation teaches people to farm organically (primarily on a homestead level), and we further assist by setting up commity based cooperatives that buy the surplus production from these farmers at a guaranteed cash price.

    In one of the tribal areas we’re working in, Nositha, I have been communicating with the local chief, with the aim of getting accorded a piece of tribal land for a homestead. I’ve identified my spot, with a magnificent view of the Indian Ocena, and intend to constuct a home that suits a green minded, unattached bachelor like me, with a permaculture garden surrounding it.

    The great thing about the tribal land is that there are no building restrictions or regulations to adhere to, and that there is backup municipal water and electricity that will help to tide things over until the initial construction costs are settled and one can start buying solar panels and sinking boreholes.

    Thank you for the inspiration, you’ve got an awesome website!
