  • Cancun revisited 2012 « Travelling Greenheart Mike
    things up a couple of dimensions this time we re five Greenheart Travellers and in a short while the group will be complete The first three Leesa Mariano and Mike have been here in Cancún Quintana Roo for just shy of a week And a full on week rather than balmy holiday it s certainly been The tremendous Hostel Quetzal has been our hearty home and we ve played our part by exchanging green practices and energy for our stay In addition to telling many folk about Greenheart happenings and giving out our GH stickers to many fine folk we ve also had just enough time to stroll a sandy beach or two and dip in the warm Caribbean waters Today saw us out en el campo visiting a 15 hectare ranch chickens turkeys bees fruit trees and abundant biodiversity belonging to Ernesto the original owner of the building that s now the hostel Just a 45 minute drive out of the city his ranch is located in the lush verdant tropical woodland that the Yucatán peninsular is famed for The project he s working on there is inspirational and we spent time discussing its functioning and advising on green ways forward such as composting toilets grey water systems and the cultivation of organic vegetables to cater for the forthcoming ecotourism potential the site offers Have a look at a few snaps from the first days here in the slideshow below The next installment will detail trips to the Mayan sites of Chichen Itzá and Tulum as we continue with the dream green team talent show YOUR SUPPORT IS APPRECIATED Please assist by donating to the GH travellers fund to help us continue the good work during this trip in the awesome Americas Thank you so much to all those

  • Kenya – The Final Weeks 2011 « Travelling Greenheart Mike
    aim was to have the place looking tippy top for start of term in 2012 the kitchen ready for the mamas to cook in and the garden sprouting nicely with veggies for use there at the school and for sale to the local community As we finished our last couple of days and had a fond farewell from Luis family Aya and the Jambo team the feeling was super positive We re so very grateful for all our fine experiences and hospitality we were shown by the wonderful people in Maasailand Without doubt there is so much more to do on projects in Kenya and I know Mariano is keen on returning as soon as possible We both give big thanks to Laura and Emanuel of the Foundation for the Future for making possible all the great things that we ve achieved in 2011 Hold on to your hats for more action and adventure in 2012 Take a look at the photos from our final week or so in Kenya Below this slideshow are some videos of the action Here are three short videos giving a flavour of the action January 4th 2012 Category Greenheart People Jambo Volunteers Kenya Organic

  • Kenya – Week Five « Greenheart Voyagers
    for the job was an exercise in patience that took a whole day Local hardware shops are filled with rubbish quality materials from China which break on the first use When you are able to find the parts that will actually work the prices are much higher than even in Europe so there was much frustration and cursing going on We finally got it all sorted out and after the trials of actually fitting the pipe connections and taps more cursing the pipe has now been laid leaks fixed and is working We also prepared the shamba vegetable garden for the planting of the crops made a nice rock garden with shrubs and medicinal plants and we carried out the pipe work for the Mandala Garden This involved laying a pipe underground which takes the used water from the kitchen to a rock filled hole in the centre of the Mandala Garden The recycled water will amply irrigate the garden and we were thrilled to see it working after all the digging and struggling to connect everything On Friday we had a school visit from our Ibiza based friend Natalie plus baby daughter Shakti It was great to show her what we d been doing and to have a chat over chapatis and tea at the shop across from the school With just two days left we re exhausted but happy to have achieved as much as we could in the tricky conditions out here Monday and Tuesday of next week will see us getting the school kids involved in finally planting the vegetables and crops in the 16 beds plus Mandala Garden Once again we will be assisted by staff from the inspirational biointensive farm G Biack so we will have the necessary guidance and training to get this
