    Charcoal Making for Small Enterprises

    Charcoal Making for Small Enterprises

    The making of charcoal has been a versatile utility for humans for as long as history has been recorded. Charcoal is made from any kind of wood and its manufacture may promote a socially desirable development provided that its organization is well planned and conducted in an ecologically conscious manner. Special thanks to Appropriate Technology Library and to the original Peace Corps volunteers who documented their on-the-ground experience to make this knowledge available.

    Yelema Ecovillage Project Case Study in West Africa (with Adelaide Merle)

    Adelaide Merle is one of the authors of the Yelema Project Case study: click here. Sobata is a traditional village in Guinea, West Africa. The community can grow food only three months of the year, during the rainy season – and the rest of the year is getting drier and drier with climate change. The people of Sobata dream of transforming their community into a thriving ecovillage by helping to restore and regenerate the natural cycles in their bioregion, as well as by increasing their resilience to some of the inevitable effects of global climate change. Support the project: click here.

Joeshiva ,

Wow what a great podcast!

I just finished the latest episode with Jeff McGregor and it was very informative. Most of the questions Ive been having were answered in this one episode. They are absolutely right about all the rabbit holes you can go down when it comes to Ecovillages, but now I have a better idea of which ones to go down after listening. I just subscribed and cant wait to see whats next!
