    Hallo Sustainche,

    during the weekend I thought of some new questions ;-))
    How many unmarried males live on the farm; and the same refers to the females?
    What kind of trees are the so called “House trees”?
    What’s inside the shelter huts and the storage huts?
    I think that is enough for today

    Have a good time,
    Manfredche II

      Hello Manfredche II & friends in Germany, thanks for your latest questions :-)

      1. How many unmarried males live on the farm; and the same refers to the females? At the moment one unmarried son and one unmarried daughter live on Sustainche Farm. The youngest son, however, is about to join the Namibian Defence Forces.
      2. What kind of trees are the so called “House trees”? The House Trees are all fruit trees, such as palm tree, papaya tree and the huge shady omuye tree, with its fruits called oombe in Oshiwambo language.
      3. What’s inside the shelter huts and the storage huts? The shelter huts are traditional wood construction with a reed grass roof and open to all sides. This is the place to sit and enjoy some shade when it is hot. In the reception area’s shelter hut traditionally you find a big tree trunk to wait until you are invited to enter the house. The storage huts a closed construction made of Mopane (Colophospermun mopane) branches and interlaced with strips of Mopane bark. We’ll show you pictures with the upcoming Sustainche Farm™ products: The ‘Mahangu’ Episode 😉

      Enjoy your day,
      Warm regards Sustainche, Lisa & the Sustainche Farm family

    Hi Sustainche Farm, I love what you are doing, I am doing some research in Ongwediva with regards to compost and the way it is used in the area and I would love to learn from you and volunteer with your organization. Please email me!
