Red Clay Initiative is excited to announce it’s Annual Global Village Senegal Roots Eco-Tour in November 2014..
We will be visiting the beautiful land of Teranga, Senegal, West Africa. This diverse African nation represents all the richness of intrigue of the Sahel and offers so much to those seeking exposure to fully functioning eco-villages in a non-commercial and truly indigenous style. This Eco-Tour will take us on a magical journey, networking experts in agriculture, permaculture, beekeeping, aquaponics and a passion to see the Global Village grow and function robustly with local African people dedicated to preserving the old ways with modern approaches and updates. The hope is to bring together Westerners and African indigenous in a week of true skill and technology sharing as well as relaxation and enjoyment of the beautiful culture of the land of Senegal….
