Last November, with the support of SeedMoney.org, we managed a successful crowdfunding campaign, where we raised over 3000$US to safeguard our garden area with a new fence and some winter and wind protection. Winter is the time to do most infrastructure development at Waaipoort and we took the advantage of some volunteering hands and installed a brand new Bonnox fence around the existing garden and a whole lot more to allow for the expansion in growing area for the coming summer season.
On Saturday, the 24th of June, we celebrated the joyous occasion of the Grassroots Permaculture Course participants' graduation with a customary feast in our new kgotla/boma/kraal.
In the morning before all of that we discussed the results of their tests. Everybody also made an improved rocket stove and were explained the workings of a simple solar batch geyser by Stephen Barrow
