    Consider to get in touch if you would be interested in a 4-8 people study visit, during one or 2 months, to permaculture projects in 1 country in Africa.

    Why:
    To learn the most and take the change forward ...

    When:
    End of 2011, beginning of 2012.

    Examples to consider:

    i'm interested, but why only one country? i think we should do 2 or 3 at least if they are in reasonable proximity, maximise observation and comparison!

    it is up to us to decide if 1, 2 or 3,
    Malawi and Zimbabwe are good candidates for that...

    possible dates for me are Spring and Summer 2012.
    total length of the study visit could be 4-6 months, 2 or 3 countries.
    would prefer to volunteer for 2 months at one project/each country, and to visit a couple of projects nearby.
    i'm specially interested in projects located in savana type environments.

    I am interested in visiting Zimbabwe and other sites nearby

    I have been traveling to many perm sites and institutes. Africa has been on my list of dream perma places to visit. Let me the costs and the procedures and period of visit, if you are still open on this programme.
