In 15yrs over KTD196 has trained in excess of 3,328 children in Food 4 Life Permaculture training. This means in excess of 3,300 households have been able to feed themselves with self-sustaining Permaculture practices. The number is much higher than this as individual children have participated outside of formal Food 4 Life projects we have hosted to address Food Security issues. This project runs throughout the year however the children decide when or if they want to participate in the process.
