So will you lend us a hand? It is hard work to get something going on degraded land


“to grow something you need soil and mulch. We had compacted dust”

“No moist entering the soil, no worms, hardly any mulch. Even the weeds (let’s call them pioneer plants) had a hard time to grow. The classic results of decades of traditional farming methods: Tilling, Chemical Fertilizers, Mono-culture, Pesticides, Roundup!”

Donna Vanderloo, founder and CEO KORPOS

“Most of our land was barren. So we put sponges into the ground to grow mulch”


Well, not really, but  we dug holes and ditches and filled them according to the ZAI method. Then we waited for the rainy season and the termites to do their work.

explanation ZAI method

We filled them with pruned branches, foliage and cow dung, topping it off with some mulch of clipped grass and a handful of termites (Zai method). Then we waited for the rains and the termites to start the reviving.

It worked to stop the runoff of rainwater. The termites enthusiastically burrowed their little tunnels, so moist stayed in the ground. Now plants are growing again, see the sunflowers, without irrigation. Microbes in the soil are returning. Next rainy season we can use them as mulch to protect the soil of the tree-seedlings (Syntropy method).

Preparation barren soil

Preparation ultra-compacted claysoil: pits, first rain

First growth of pioneer plants

These pits we filled with mulch, dung and some termites. They dug drainage channels and thus enabled the growth of the first crop (sunflowers)

Second rainy season, finally enough shadow and mulch to start planting trees

Same spot second rainy season. Already small fruit trees are growing amidst pioneer shrubs

“Farm animals are sentient beings, and must be treated as such”



“Our rescued goats, cows and chickens are intelligent and gentle. No different from dogs or cats. So we treat them with the utmost respect and provide for their natural behavior. They enjoy their retirement at our farm and their dung is very useful. They need space like we do. We would never put them in a cramped compound.”
