Permacuture honors and draws on traditional farming and land preservation strategies. The everyday gandhis compound in Voinjama is Liberia’s first demonstration site, with 25 trained graduates including lettered and unlettered men and women, (Mandingo and Lorma) from the Voinjama area, and two people from Nimba county, and two observers from Foya District.
