msonge ORGANIC FAMILY FARM- zanzibar
Since 2017 AbN has been working on the design retrofit of Msonge Organic Family Farm in Zanzibar. This beautiful 10 hectare farm, already ran organically, a model of its kind, selling a large range of vegetables, fruits, meat and dairy, grown and raised on site. Now, the owner has a goal to become a large-scale example for regenerative practices, based on Permaculture principals. The retrofit will happen over a period of around 5 years. AbN is spending 3 to 4 weeks every year, first implementing the main frame design, with swale lines and other water remediating structures. And on a different level, teaching and educating the farm staff with new or revised technics with a focus of increasing production while reducing work.
