A VISION OF AN ALTERNATE WORLD
The foundation of our major permaculture institute based on research and experimentation in low-tech and low-cost methods. our goal is to provide continuous training by reproducing these models in water tech, sanitation, bio-diversity, reforestation, and eco-building.
Building mini institutes around the globe in collaboration with universities and other organizations that fight soil erosion, food insecurity and are looking to support smallholder farmers in becoming self-sufficient. The ambassadors of roots up solutions and the minds behind these trainings will provide continuous support along the way. the institutes will be Equipped with the right tools and knowledge to help the local community that will greatly benefit from the project and will ultimately be involved in further training of other people.
