Hey Big Boy!  Fence That Dream!

His Permaculture Community Gardens, Seed Swapping Parties and Tree Planting Teams are pumping in Harere, Zimbabwe.

Young people look up to him from the end of a Mattock.  Elders wrap their arms around his big shoulders like he is a prize fighter for the Community.  He is!

But today, Musemwa Big Boy is anxious.

He stays up late.  Looking at his old Phone to see if His BIG PERMACULTURE DREAM is about to come true!    The Fundraiser to “Fence Our Dream” is underway on Facebook and its “make-or-break time”.

He has a chance to access 7 Hectares on the Land of His birth!  His Beloved Mount Darwin District.

Big Boy has a big dream for this land.

Teaming up with his good Friend Ngonidzashe Marowa, Fabio Huther of umuntu.ch and the Earth Repair Team, to turn this land into a thriving resource for the surrounding communities.  Trees and Homes will rise, Seeds and Food Forests will be fostered, Gardens, A Community Centre, a Meditation space, a Permaculture School for Children…the full colours of Nature and Community in what can only be described as “UMUNTU!” blossoms in Big Boys mind.

His Team have been ordered to fence the land or risk losing it.  Land is Precious and many want to claim it, of course.

In this time of immense ecological uncertainty, big Permaculture Dreams need to take root and Musemwa Big Boy is our Man for the job in Zimbabwe!
