Bigboy’s Big Dream

Let’s make the Planet Green

Cure and improve soil to combat hunger on a sustainable base

While fighting hunger, Bigboy realized other communities in need for more food too, to improve their living standards and avoid malnutrition and poverty.

That was, what came to his mind in first place. For more food you need to increase your crop. How to achieve better conditions for your food to grow, was the next question turning up. Fertilizing the soil without money was a difficult problem to solve.

His answer was sustainable gardening and improving soil by permaculture treatment. The work could be split up between different community members. Still without an idea about how to gather the financial needs for a humble start, he got in contact with people in Swiss and they agreed to start the Zimbabwe Umuntu Project.

Meanwhile Bigboy takes care and caters several orphans in Harare. His dreams about the construction of a shelter with school to feed and educate the children based on the problems produced by changing climate.

He realized that many children “turn into adults” when they just find food on their plates. In many parts of the world, especially in Africa those people living in Urban areas, are not sure about how food is grown and what it means to maintain a fertile soil. Bigboy keeps dreaming to help for change with the next generation and tries to educate more people to learn about soil fertilization through permaculture gardening.

Mobilizing, awareness, raising tree seedlings and running food forests and planting them in partnership with the community to develop knowledge of the issue of repairing the earth for our youths. Dreaming about a youths’ awareness about the challenges and obstacles faced when healing the earth.

Encouraging the youths to develop ideas and solutions how an encouraged person starts to develop their ideas about solutions for “a better world” including both, climate change and food security mobilization and sensitizing activities locally and online to have a great audience of Bigboy’s dream in more communities.

Currently Bigboy and his team run a permaculture garden, with the passion for permaculture gardening, to end poverty and hunger in more communities in Africa. He keeps dreaming to run more school activities in the future, if there is availability of funds to support him and the tutorial permaculture team to take care of their welfare which includes transport, food, internet costs, allowances each time they are working on the field.

Many adults educated in the past years didn’t get a chance to learn this at school and that is why Bigboy is giving the first priority to the children/ students in school, because this way it becomes easier to train more communities on the long run. Children belong to communities and once they get educated or learn from school, it becomes easy for them to carry back the information into their households and hence improving the living standards and hunger in more African communities. Bigboy is welcoming volunteers to help make a big impact in the community.

His dream seems a "never ending" when thinking about all the problems we need to resolve as fast as possible!

The Importance of Soil Revitalization

To improve and gain healthy soil, we need to use natural fertilizers. One of the most effective ways to create soil conditions able to sustain the population is the permaculture method. The main goal of permaculture is to use the ecosystem to replace lost nutrients and create healthier soil. 

This involves composting all kinds of waste and turning them into useful materials. Without compost, permaculture would be impossible. Practizing permaculture considers the succession of different plant populations as a way to protect the soil and gain rich crops.

Plant a wide variety of plants with succession in mind.  Permaculture has a broad, positive impact on food production. By mimicking the natural environment, it is an excellent way to grow more food, while improving soil at the same time.

 

Recycle and Waste Management

The most effective waste management solutions are to reduce “waste production” from the early stages, which means changing production methods. Consumption patterns must change and the use of raw materials must decrease. This should be combined with an environmentally friendly recycling process. Recently, the concept of recycling has taken on new meaning. Although recycling still needs to be improved, great strides are being made towards Zero Waste in many places. While some of the biggest corporations are responsible for pollution, there’s a lot we can achieve by adopting greener methods.

The benefits of using eco-friendly recycling techniques are multiple. Not only does recycling reduce your carbon footprint, but it also saves natural resources. Recycled materials can be repurposed for new products, reducing the need to mine for raw materials. Recycling ensures a healthier place to live for our children too.

Circular Economy

Utilize the three R’s which define circular economy; Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Together, this will reduce the amount of waste we produce, provided we avoid the unnecessary manufacturing of new goods. An alternative is to cut off the branch that we’re sitting on and then destroy ourselves as well as the planet by destroying the natural environment around us. Circular economy is the economic system that encourages the use of biodegradable materials, recycling, and reuse. Ultimately, this system aims to protect the environment by decreasing the amount of material that is produced and returning it to it as a resource.

The concept of circular economy has become a defining feature of the modern world. It replaces the traditional linear economic model of make-use-dispose and stresses the importance of reuse and recycling. This model reduces overall demand by recovering resources and energy from products, resulting in lower costs and increased value. It also prevents over-generation of waste, creates new revenue streams, and minimizes environmental impact.
