Permaculture for the Rural African Environment – Our PDC is of particular relevance to those wanting to apply PC to rural development in indigenous communities in the rural developing world in general. We focus on appropriate technology, soil and water harvesting, indigenous knowledge systems and Permaculture in schools – a key focus point for the community, a chance to influence the coming generation to shift away from the mentality of dependence on aid towards self sufficiency and sustainable resource use. Konso itself is a food in-secure area in southern Ethiopia sitting in the bowl of the Great Rift Valley. It has a semi-arid (k’olla) ecology, with sorghum, maize and sunflower as major crops. The people are well known for their hard work, complex social organisation and sophisticated agriculture, which makes extensive use of stone wall terracing for soil and water conservation.
