My name is Stella Nyambura Mbau (Ph.D.) from Nairobi, Kenya, and I work with the Abundant Earth Foundation as a project coordinator. Since I started this new role, I’ve met other beautifully driven people, which makes working with them a pleasure. I’ve confirmed the challenges that most rural communities in sub-Sahara suffer from. Still, through the support AEF offers these communities (based on community and regenerative agriculture), I have also gained insights and a sense of hope that these challenges can be addressed.
Let’s Celebrate International Compost Awareness Week!
Did you know that food leftovers and garden waste together make up 30% of our waste? We can easily turn this common waste into compost. If we make compost at home on our balcony or in our garden, we will not add to mountains of trash. And as a result, we can protect the world from the toxic methane gas released in landfills.
