We met Laurence Gent working alongside him in the permaculture food garden at our university. His natural ability to teach and impart wisdom captivated us. He explained complex ideas to us with powerful and very comprehensible analogies, always humbly, emphasizing his desire to learn more. He is deeply religious and believes his purpose is to serve others and share his abilities.
Laurence was retrenched and it was a monumental loss to us, because we felt very fortunate to have built a relationship with him. We see his retrenchment as an opportunity to show gratitude for all that he has given us and to grant him an opportunity to pursue life long learning and teaching.
We were concerned that without 'formal' training or recognition he might not find adequate work or a platform to share his abilities. The retrenchment is an opportunity for Lawrence to up-skill and build his capacity as a permaculture practitioner and teacher.
The funds raised will help this outstanding teacher to complete his Permaculture Design Course.
