Be hope to Her, BH2O+

Submitted by Reinder on May 4, 2018 - 9:49am

Got fast feedback came from Bram in Berlin! He told me the link to BH2O+ (Be hope to her) was broken. When finding out what was the trouble, I discovered and other video and a better link to the NGO that is behind the BH20+ water-for-women events and actions.

Because this public event of students carrying water in a beautiful Italian city is very inspiring for our Berlin endeavor.

So the first thing to do is to learn from them. This is their website, check it out soonest:

  • Why don't you use a bucket?
    Buckets are available, but for really poor people it is a heavy investment. That's why most of them are broken. And you can't send buckets by email.

  • Do people have water?
    There is always some water from a puddle that is not good for drinking or grey water, the water that remains after washing clothes or cutlery.

  • Do people have fertilizer?
    Probably urine can be utilized as well.

  • Do people have plastic bags?
    Yes, too many.

A Content Management System for the data about the TreeDripper project

Submitted by Reinder on September 24, 2017 - 10:21pm

To organise the growing instream of data even before our first workshop

TreeDripper is a great idea and the info about the actual thing is not that much. Say ten pages A4 technical description. If you include the art of tree nursing and tree planting, then you have to consider to make space for a lot of books, though a small booklet may contain already 80 % of what matters for the TreeDripper enthusiasts.
