Permaculture in the Uganda school curriculum

CONGRATULATIONS to our project supervisor and permaculture consultant, Charles Mugarura, for success in his huge effort to have Permaculture accepted on to the new Ugandan school curriculum for the first time. He has produced several excellent workbooks for the courses. This will make an amazing difference to the practical education of children in Uganda in how to produce and eat the most nutritious food, in conjunction with conserving the environment and fostering good social structures. Lorna Brown has visited schools where Charles and his team have already established permaculture food gardens. Teachers have remarked how much the health and concentration of pupils have improved since they have been eating fresh garden food. This should soon be the norm for Ugandan schoolchildren, thanks to Charles and permaculture!
