On March 10th, 2023, we had a joint party with Opulence Malawi, one of our partners in Permaculture. The event was a huge success as we had fun and shared ideas on how to end hunger in Malawi. The party was just the beginning of a series of activities aimed at achieving sustainable farming practices and multiple harvests in the region.
The Permaculture Paradise Institute organized a practical training course for all, with a focus on farmers. The training course, which ran for four days, was held in Mchinji and brought together a diverse group of participants from different organizations, including Baylor College of Medicine, Opulence Malawi, Youth Alliance for Sustainable Development (YASD), and Children of the Nations.

The training course was aimed at equipping farmers with the necessary skills and knowledge to implement sustainable farming practices and multiple harvests. By bringing together different organizations, we can work together to end hunger in Malawi. The joint party was just the beginning of a long-term partnership between Opulence Malawi and Permaculture Paradise Institute to achieve this goal.
On the final day of the Permaculture Training Course in Mchinji, 21 permaculture practitioners were born. These individuals are now equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to implement regenerative, productive, and resilient systems in their farming practices.
The birth of these practitioners marks a significant milestone in the fight against hunger in Malawi. With the knowledge gained from this training course, they can now work towards achieving sustainable farming practices and multiple harvests in their communities.
This training course was not just about acquiring knowledge but also about building a movement. A movement of individuals who are passionate about ending hunger in Malawi and who are willing to work together to achieve this goal.
The legacy of this training course will be remembered for years to come. The birth of these 21 permaculture practitioners is a testament to the impact that can be made when we work together towards a common goal. We are excited to see the positive changes that will be brought about by these practitioners in their communities.
In conclusion, the Permaculture Training Course in Mchinji was a huge success. The birth of 21 permaculture practitioners marks a significant milestone in the fight against hunger in Malawi. It is our hope that this training course will inspire more individuals to join the movement towards achieving sustainable farming practices and multiple harvests in the region.
Together, we can make a difference.
