    far off I potter around at base and check out the swales Patrick is busy digging The whole area is so green and vibrant and Jambo HQ looks splendid with tall grasses well mulched trees veggie gardens in good shape and the twenty odd new trees bought yesterday have already been swiftly planted by a speedy Patrick Heading out Luis and I jump in the matatu 4wd shock reinforced minibus and cross the savannah on muddy potholed roads to the borehole to check on the generator latest We find a jovial mechanic and the genny in bits The worst fears are confirmed it s buggered This ll mean our water will have to be delivered by truck 60 euro a journey plus there ll be the expense of new parts and fixing the genny and a good few weeks till it ll be done The weekend saw us getting in a swift hike enjoying some sunshine mixed with rolling thunderstorms dumping plenty of maji We re joined by Jambo partner Borja from ONG The South Face who works scouting Africa for bright young things to sponsor through higher education and university A group of foreign visitors arrives at HQ and we all go to visit the girls Rescue House an important Jambo Volunteers project where we ll be focussing on making improvements When we drop the group later at their base the rain is really hammering down and rivers come out of nowhere whilst the road becomes a slippery mud bath An old truck is stuck and blocking the road Luis and I resign ourselves to getting soaked and mud coated and help the locals to eventually tug the pile of junk out of the mire Mzungus to the rescue Week 2 The team builds We collect Mariano at dawn the next Tuesday and our nen is shown the delights of Maasailand and welcomed to Jambo HQ No time waster Mariano rapidly gets to work on the shamba composting mulching the plots and getting some new seeds ready to plant Luis is grinning widely A new composting toilet is planned on site and the plot is prepared We pay a visit to the Rescue House where an eco loo had been built earlier this year The structure is good but there ll need to be some modifications and proper training in use for the girls there Afterwards making the most of a sunny afternoon we drive over to the view point near the home of Julius We spot baboons and delight in the immense vistas to the west but all too soon another storm is building and we head for base to make plans for the next days tasks Back at Kimuka primary school Mariano and I get busy in the shamba cleaning and tidying up making plans for the kitchen and checking what needs fixed The pupils are shown some tips in the garden by Mariano and then we head for town to get material supplies and tools for

  • Kenya – Week One « Travelling Greenheart Mike
    days to help us with the projects Earlier in the week we visited the inspirational G Biack an outstandng example of bio intensive vegetable cultivation and much more near the town of Thika north west of Nairobi In just two years of operation they have managed to create a perfect working model for sustainable farming and are additionally assisting over five thousand farmers working in plant cultivation in Kenya We are thrilled that the director at G Biack will soon visit Kimuka primary school where we plan to make the vegetable garden Journeying in the Jambo minibus we experienced the pollution and traffic chaos that Nairobi is famous for It was a great relief returning after nightfall to the fresh air and starlit beauty of our Maasailand home Today Sunday we walked around 1Km across the savannah to the borehole where our water is piped in from checking the status of a couple of leaks in the pipes and to see how the water is pumped and distributed The borehole s location is at the home of Chief Daniel Sankak who is in charge of the water installation and pumping of water as well as being the chief in the area who deals with any disputes among six thousand Maasai people who reside in this part of Maasailand Next week we ll return to Kimuka primary school to make progress on the bio intensive garden We re still so inspired by what we saw at G Biack near Thika and excited that they will offer us advice and assistance at the school Also we ll be continuing with the plan to put in a composting toilet at the school and will visit other projects being worked on by Jambo Volunteers There ve been so many great moments already during our
