Broadfield Enterprises Uganda Permaculture
Charles Mugarura CEO Broadfield Enterprises Uganda Permaculture Group: A youth representative of Global Citizen, a social enterprise operating on pillars of permaculture, and implementing permaculture across boarders in Africa. He wants to thank everyone who is making a change in favor of Nature! He believes that there is a chance to live in a FREE WORLD! A world without poverty or oppression of food security, with no war, with no damaged soil, with no lack of resources for continuation of knowledge. That would be the biggest goal we can ever achieve.“ I believe in Permaculture: Every problem is a solution”
He started permaculture at the age of 16 years old and is currently 26 years old. His courageous goal of engaging Uganda Ministry of Education to consider permaculture for primary schools to reduce the school drop out rate estimated at 70,000 children countrywide. The main reason drop out rates are so high are because of lack of food from home and at school. Currently, under the initiative, Charles is trying to develop permaculture primary model schools. They are rehabilitating Sabina food and water permaculture projects where they hold PDCs and other training to make it possible to scale permaculture in different communities. In addition, his long-term dream is to build the first school of permaculture in Uganda to foster permaculture professionalism for Uganda and Africa!
I believe as well that Permaculture is the solution for soil degradation, poverty, lack of food supply for the whole population, the knowledge crisis, and even war! The designs, patterns, relationships that work together within a sustainable natural ecology is the solution for Uganda and The World.
Permaculture is the Solution
Geoff Lawton’s Video on the Ultimate Goal, He says it all! Permaculture is more than just soil and agriculture. Permaculture is a movement of Sustainable Permanent Culture. Bringing local, nutrient-rich food to every neighborhood will make a stable local economy in addition to the nutrient-rich food. Also, lowering the waste of food, decrease the cost, the time and the resources in the transportation of food. Permaculture encourages the culture of people working together as a community. We should trade knowledge and products to become a sustainable working environment for everyone.
The Solution for Knowledge: Permaculture Design Course
BEU Permaculture Group & Sabina Permaculture Food and Water Security Project-Kyotera District Uganda will be holding a Permaculture Design Course on December 10th through the 23rd. The course will be for school teachers, NGO staff members, farmers, and individuals. The primary instructors will be Mugarura Charles – BEU- Permaculture Group, Laura Maier – Practical Permaculture Institute Zanzibar, Sheena Shah – Kenya and, Racheal Corda Asio -Arego – Agro-Organic Foods. The course is the foundational Permaculture course originally developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison. The systemic approach of the Permaculture design process extends beyond the field. Every home and garden also involves the solution to the community and economic aspects.

The Tipping Point
Geoff Lawton discusses reaching Our Tipping Point, the more people that we can spread the knowledge of Permaculture to, then each of those people will spread Permaculture we are that much closer to our tipping point. When our movement becomes the way, things are done. I believe we can hit Our tipping point.
