I'm not sure if I've emailed you before but, if not, I wanted to say a big "thank you!" for putting up the website, good work! It's helped me a lot in my attempt to learn natural farming and it's good to see that you're also in Africa - I'm currently in The Gambia finishing up a 2 year Peace Corps Volunteer stint. I've been teaching natural farming here and made a manual to help the people. So, I'm just putting together a presentation for some new volunteers we have here and wanted to reach out to you. I've been looking at the site for a couple years now. Thanks and all the best

SQWorms Response to Aloha Gambia Natural Farming Thank You; CC: Knock Knock Uganda PC: Jenny Everrett
Thanks for your email. No, I don’t recall you having emailed me before; I always respond to emails; so would have responded. I did recently email some Peace Corps Volunteers from Uganda; more about that further below.
I am glad that the information on sqworms.co.nr was useful to you; most of it, particularly when it comes to the recipes was not my own work, I collected it from around the web and compiled it into one place.
Yes I am also in Africa. I was born here and experienced living under Verwoerd’s Apartheid compared to the current Mandelatopia; which I think gives me a slightly different perspective; than the culture shock you experienced arriving in Africa.
Did you notice the ‘Ecology of Peace’ notice; I have on the SQWorms Contact page; under ‘please note’?
I did a google search on your email address and found your Aloha Gambia blog; and have been reading some of your blog posts; about your experiences dealing with indecisive Africans.
By indecisive Africans; I mean African people who are cognitively clueless about what they want. Uganda Peace Corps volunteer: Jenny Everett, quite accurately described it; I think; at her blog: Knock Knock: Who’s There? Uganda; in Mortal Peace Corps Kombat.
I had some thoughts about some of the issues you discuss in your blog posts – my interpretation: about an indecisive European awakening to the reality of his indecisiveness about who he is or what he wants; except in terms of what his indecisive money and tits and ass slut worshipping culture has taught him to want; attempting to help indecisive Africans were more than thought provoking – and thought about providing you with some honest subjective feedback; from a woman who does know what she wants; who avoids attempting to help anyone else: European or African; unless they are willing to clarify what it is they want; and she considers what they want; worthy of her time and effort.
Do you want my feedback; and if so: Would you prefer I respond on your blog; or by email?
Generally – in terms of my Clerk Ecology of Peace campaign transparency standards – correspondence that is or could be interpreted as ‘EoP’ –v– ‘WiP’ negotiations -- whether it be truthseeking honest cooperative win-win discussion; or argumentative combative in your face Marine Corps Wake the Fuck Up obscenities to slap imbecile idiots across the head with a nail-ended two-by-four; to confront them with their -- ‘Do I want an ‘EoP’ or ‘WiP’ social contract future?’ – decision-making; are transparently recorded.
For numerous multi-tasking reasons; among others Knock Knock Uganda PCV Jenny Everrett has already previously been contacted; as part of EoP Axis: Uganda; I shall update this PCV correspondence there at: EoP Axis Military Necessity Evacuation: Uganda [PDF]
