Playground in Zanzibar

CalEarth Alumni Quintin Christian is hard at work with another amazing project. This time it is a playground in Fumba Town Eco City in Zanzibar, Tanzania. 

Christian and his team trained people from the local community in Zanzibar, including a large group of women. 

The playground consists of a barazza for parents to relax while they watch their children (it will eventually be covered with shading), in front of that is a fish pond and the central area is a sandpit (they are planting a large tree there for shade).  It also has a kiosk for drinks and snacks and the domes are play areas that shelter children from the harsh sun and have loads of holes they can climb in for fun.

Christian worked together with @ecodomesafrica @frankogreen and @permaculture_zanzibar on this project and had the president of Tanzania visit the project and were very impressed with the technology.
