What a brilliant idea - my friends Ansi & Mo (who used to run the entrepreneurship programmes at the Barn) are running a WDC2014 project to set up some township homes as spaces that will showcase sustainable and affordable living through advances in green energy, science and technology.
They are converting a minimum of 10 homes in a street in Gugulethu into "innovation homes" and "learning labs", not only making each home self-sufficient, but also spreading awareness around the innovations and their benefits into the greater community.
They need your help!!! - they are crowdfunding the project, and have about R9k to go! Please spread the word and consider supporting them!
