Weet jij waar je voedsel vandaan komt?

Gisteren kregen we de mogelijkheid om met een aantal kinderen van de Kopila Valley School rijst te planten. Een geweldige ervaring. Niet alleen voor mij als outsider, maar ook voor de kinderen die hier al hun hele leven wonen. En alhoewel sommige scholieren al eens eerder hadden meegeholpen met het planten van rijst, waren er ook velen die dit nog nooit eerder hadden gedaan, wat het tot een unieke en memorabele dag maakte. Ik zal nooit meer hetzelfde naar rijst kijken.

A Tale of Two Tanks

One of the remarkable things about our new campus is the ingenious way it will reduce waste. For example, take a look at these two tanks. One will harvest grey water (sink and shower water) and another will collect black water (bathroom waste). Rainwater will also be collected (the tale of three tanks doesn’t sound as catchy...) in a HUGE tank, where it will then be treated and used for drinking, cooking, and washing hands.
