4. who are you and what is your background?
I am Prince Sebe Maloba and I am a trained, certified permaculture teacher and farmer with a degree in microbiology. Based on research and experience in permaculture, I see myself as a permaculture activist with a personal commitment to ecological and social justice. I collect solutions, test them and offer them to society. I am also the founder and CEO of Umuntu Movement Uganda, which teaches farmers how to design natural houses and abundant food production systems, regenerate degraded landscapes and ecosystems, and develop ethical economies and communities. Thus, permaculture in Uganda is promoted much more strongly.
