Michael Waiyaki Nganga
"Regenerative living means seeing our world of tomorrow with the next generation's eyes. Everything goes back to our spirit, to our way of being. We need to ask ourselves: What are we leaving behind?"
Michael Nganga is the Founder and CEO of Miti Alliance, a social enterprise operating in Kenya focusing on planting and growing trees. His background is in project management and holds a master’s degree in energy and sustainability.
Michael and Sheena Shah explain to us how they see regenerative urban farming and bring aspects of organic farming and permaculture into the way of farming and living. They dive deep into the business opportunity of training people in regenerative farming. As they are overwhelmed with the opportunities present in Nairobi and across Kenya they call upon the youth to go into that business. They already see ShambaJijini food soldiers across Kenya, which is very inspiring for making a change as a community.
