Renowned indigenous permaculturalist, Mr. Zephaniah Phiri from Zvishavane, describes the lack of rainfall in the semi-arid natural region four in Zimbabwe and the good results he's had with his water harvesting pits that gather and infiltrate what falls in the few major storms they receive. Mixing his humourous style with penetrating questions, and an eye on the practical, Mr. Phiri is still inspiring innovation in the land after more than fifty years of prayer, protest, experimentation and teaching; he is the vision behind a lot of the innovation occuring in Mazvihwa. With cameo appearances by Patrick Holden and Brock Dolman.
