Senegal farmer grows lush oasis in the desert using permaculture techniques

Senegal native and permaculture pioneer Goran N’diaye has created a lush oasis in the middle of the desert in his homeland.

At the Kaydara agro-ecological farm located in Sine Saloum in Senegal, director Goran N’diaye, has implemented a number of permaculture techniques.

He first started by restoring the fertility of the soil, by creating a first plant layer which in turn attracted birds and bees. Over time, Goran N’diaye established multi-shelf production including turnips, onions, and papayas. 

Following his own success, Goran N’diaye is now training the next generation of young Senegalese farmers. In doing so, he hopes to change traditions and spread sustainable, ecologically friendly farming practices.
