The Kamado is innovating in the Tsiribihina delta
Laurent Noël became the mangrove Kamado maker in the Tsiribihina delta. He has contributed to bringing innovations to WWF's basic training model and has adapted the manufacturing to the materials available on site.For example, one of the materials mixed with the soil to make the home is straw. "I found that straw swollen by moisture decreases in volume when drying. Which tends to cause cracking of the hearth” He declares.“So I replaced this element with rice ashes to get a stronger stove”. He also thought of adding designs to embellish the rustic side of his hearths. Committed, he aims to develop his business to support his family and at the same time reduce pressure on the forest.
Elements to make a Kamado:
- Red soil (1 bucket)
- Clay (1 bucket)
- Ash (1/2 bucket)
- Straw (a handful)
- Water (a little to mix everything)
