AND ECOLOGICAL RESTORATION
everyday gandhis' Ecological Restoration Program includes our home compound, a neighboring empty lot, and a 50-acre forest preserve near our Voinjama compound that serves as a source of food, medicinal plants, and, in time, a research/educational site that will enhance production in nearby farms and contribute to drought protection for nearby wells.
We are currently exploring possible wildlife corridors and ecotourism initiatives in collaboration with local government, ecologists, and neighboring communities whose township lands could be linked as a preserve in exchange for assistance with similar local development projects.
Permaculture is a form of sustainable agriculture that increases food production, restores soils and forests, provides drought protection and safely recycles human and vegetable waste. Permacuture honors and draws on traditional farming and land preservation strategies. The everyday gandhis compound in Voinjama is Liberia’s first demonstration site. Additional village sites are being added each year.
