We have a responsibility for a clean environment. Our goal is to build an ecologically sustainable project. Our big vision is for an abundant and fair world, where the next generation live in harmony with the Earth. Our mission (i.e. our positive steps to reach this big vision) is to provide inspiration, motivation and tools to enable people to be proactive in creating a regenerative living for themselves and for others.
The garden is designed according to the principles of permaculture – a continuous regenerative, near-natural and permanently functioning cycle of food production without pesticides and artificial fertilizer.
Using the sun for energy production. Shangilia no longer relies on electricity from Kenya power to cover its daytime and nighttime needs
Rainwater collecting system
Rainwater is harvested from all roofs and collected into overhead and underground tanks. This covers part of the water consumption. The other part is covered with well water from our shallow well.
greywater cleaning system
The grey water (shower water, kitchen water…) is purified by micro-bacteria and then used for watering the garden In this way 6000 liters of water are recycled daily.
We have a biogas system used for cooking. This way we protect the cutting down of the trees as we no longer use firewood
Drip irrigation in the garden
Through this modern irrigation system only as necessary water is used for the plants.
We separate garbage. Biological waste from the kitchen and from the grounds is used in the garden to make compost. Natural fertilizer for the garden.
