Bloukrans is a village near Dordabis in the Khomas Region of Central Namibia. The population of about 1000 people is scattered within 30 mins by foot. The main language being spoken is Afrikaans.
Namibia is the driest country in Sub-Saharan Africa, with most water derived from groundwater sources, so permaculture will be able to make a huge difference there.
The project is starting with Randy Körner, the first recipient, who has a 10-hectare farm. He and his cousin have goats and a little garden around a spilling water pump. Randy is familiar with permaculture already and will be able to inspire the rest of the community and help the other recipients as they learn.
