My Guinean friend Laro and I have started a fruit plantation in BOFFA on his familys land of 8 hectar! It is where his father, who died 13 years ago, used to grow food for the family of 11 children (9 alive). Noone has touched the land, apart from the people burning down the bush to steal the charbon, since his father worked here with his sons and daughters. The soil is rich and dark!
Started in may 2014, we are giving our all to recreate this land into paradise, which was meant to be on earth! Our intention is to nourish the land and plant a multitude of tropical fruit trees and plants. So far we got a hold on Coconut palms, jackfruit, mango, guava, carambol and cashew. We have planted 4 dfferent kinds of bananas, a lot of maniok, some sweet potato and papaya is on the way! When august comes, the rainiest month in the region, orange trees will be planted too!
A traditional BAGE has been set in place. Our shelter when the sun is hot, when it is pouring down and during night time! We are spending almost all our time on the land working, dancing or listening to the frogs and toads birds and crickets surrouding us.
We have also built a water storage tank round in shape. It will collect rain water during the rainy months and will make it possible to water the trees during the dry season; it can store 30000 liters of water! Turtles will be kept too clean the water
LETS RECREATE PARADISE!!! Welcome to help us here in Guinea!
Je suis un petit agriculteur apiculteur horticulteuret vis avec ma famille et travail dans ma pepiniere dans le village de Sebhory, au coeur de la magnifique region du Fouta Djalon. Je suis egalement guide touristique, nous pouvons donc organiser des trek lors des temps libres. Nous travaillons sur plusieurs plans comme les pepiniere, la recolte du miel, la cultures des fruits et legumes ainsi que les plantes medicinales. Contactez moi plutot par telephone car l accessibilite a internet est difficil. Merci et a bientot (les semences bio de toutes les plantes que vous appreciez sont les bienvenues, ici tout pousse!)

GUINEA , WEST AFRICA
Within a village of about 12 families. Hi to all! We are writing here from my little piece of heaven. I have a variety of tropical trees including nearly 50 organic orange trees that produce a massive amount of fruit each year. There are also coconut trees, avocado, banana, grapefruit, palm, calabash, and then several gardens with vegetables & ginger root. There are many children - Africa's children, not my own. So there is plenty of good work for all the brave souls and then when work done, if African drumming or dancing is of interest, we will have classes daily for 5 bucks!. We have a monkey named Bob! He is wonderful & and can't wait to meet you.
