joseph lentunyoi and the laikipia permaculture centre

I interviewed Joseph Lentunyoi, co-founder of the Permaculture Research Institute-Kenya and the permaculture demonstration site where I did my Permaculture Design Certificate course, Laikipia Permaculture Centre.

“What is permaculture to you?
I would define permaculture in a general way as sustainable human settlements in a holistic approach, so that everyone can take it up. Here in Laikipia, for example, we’re talking about building peace, livelihoods, and about degraded landscapes, so we take that approach.”

Have a read on the Transition Network blog to find out more about seeing and using the resources that we have, permaculture’s contribution to peacebuilding, and what empowerment is according to Lentunyoi.
